Network-Security-Twitter-Feeds-to-Follow_SQTwitter is one of the most dominant social networks on the Internet and part of its success lies in the fact that tweets have to be so concise and limited to 140 characters. For many it has replaced RSS, news aggregation sites and most traditional media for the latest headlines across most fields. Information security pros abound on Twitter. While not all of their tweets may be 100% focused on InfoSec, we’ve picked 61 network security Twitter feeds we think are worth following. Please note that some tend to use colorful and direct language in their tweets. Don’t always expect IT-related tweets; they do have other interests in life.
