Earlier this week we looked at the top 100 thought leaders within the Internet of Things (IoT) conversation on Twitter. Congratulations again to all of those who made the list (as well as those that didn’t – check out this article for our thoughts on the nature of influence and influencer lists).

This time, we’ve decided to look at the top organizations (brands, publications and other groups) driving the IoT Twitter discussion, and how they are connected with one another. 

Mapping the Network

As before, we took in all of the tweets using either the #IoT or #internetofthings hashtags, and created a network from the conversations. We then calculated the relative influence of all of the organizations in the network using PageRank analysis. Here’s how the top 50 are connected (click for lager image):

The Top 50 IoT Organisations on Twitter

Large tech firms such as Cisco, Intel, Oracle, Texas Instruments and Symantec rank alongside media outlets including GigaOM and Computerworld, while a number of more specialist blogs and groups and smaller firms also make the top 50.

We’ve put together a list of the top 100 (including network map) for you to download and peruse at your leisure. See how your organization (or your competitors!) fared in the discussion.
