7 Twitter Feeds every SQL Server DBA should follow

31 October,2015 by Jack Vamvas

I love the immediacy of Twitter. It can be casual  or in depth. This blog post is about organising your Twitter feeds to include the best news on Twitter about SQL Server. Twitter_large

Some of the best SQL Server information on the internet is available via Twitter feeds. Top SQL experts may drop in a casual 140 word message – pointing to a great article.

What I’m saying is: drop the @katyperry, @justinbieber, @taylorswift13 feeds and follow some of the best voices in the SQL Server community.

Some of these Twitter feeds are Microsoft based others are independent .
