by | Apr 8, 2014 | Influencer Lists,

Last week we looked at the top 25 #Interop influencers after day 2 of the event, and we promised to do a full influencer analysis of the whole event. Well, that time has come – so, true to our word, we bring you the top 50 people involved in the #Interop conversation on Twitter, based on our analysis of the event hashtag.

You can also download our analysis of the top brands using the #Interop hashtag – so you can see who won the Twitter battle between Cisco and HP, whether Extreme Networks has fared as well as its representatives have in the influencers list, or how brands such as VMWare, Symantec, Brocade or Verisign compare to the competition.

Top 10 Related Hashtags

Above you’ll see the hashtags most commonly used in conjunction with #Interop. In comparison to last week, #cisco has dropped out of the top 10, while #HP has increased in prominence and #vmware has entered the top 10. #CCEVENT remains the hashtag most frequently used with #Interop, while both #SDN and #BYOD have risen in popularity.
