We know you have lots of choices when it comes to who you follow on Twitter and we thank the 4,400-plus of you who follow all the industry insight, news and information we send across the airwaves.

Add that to those who follow our editor, editor-at-large, web editor, technology editor and managing editor and we feel good about having cornered the market on keeping you informed about what’s going on in your industry—and beyond.

But we certainly don’t claim to have a monopoly on the latest news and information in the integration space. In fact, we rely on many people in the industry to tell us what’s going on and what they think about it.

As we celebrate five years on Twitter, here are the 103 feeds we’ve found to be the best when it comes to news, opinions and fun stuff related to the industry and sometimes things that have some link to the work these people do. We hope you’ll agree that these are the best Twitter feeds to follow and check them out if you haven’t done it yet.

We present our favorites in no particular order, but in groups to help you better figure out who does what. Enjoy our list, hit that “Follow” button and let us know others we should add to our must-follow feeds.
