174 OSCON speakers to follow on Twitter

No readers like this yet.
Twitter birds


Before I headed to Austin for the Community Leadership Summit (May 14 - 15) and OSCON (May 16 - 19), I went down the "OSCON speakers on Twitter" rabbit hole so you don't have to, and I collected a list of 174 people to follow. (In hindsight, it's a really, really deep rabbit hole.) If I left a speaker off the list who's active on Twitter, let me know in the comments or via a Tweet to @rikkiends.
