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.
