I did some quick analysis of the list of SAP employees on twitter created by SAP CMO Jonathan Becher. The list is probably incomplete, but here’s the current list of the 50 “top tweeters” by number of followers (please tell me if there’s something wrong in the list — I’ve already noticed a few non-employees that slid in somehow…)

    Hi Timo,

    that’s an interesting list.

    If we do a Data Geek analysis on this it looks like the majority fall into one of two categories:

    . they are working in Sales / Marketing / Communications

    . they are working with Cloud

    It will be interesting when everyone else who works in the other areas of the enterprise starts tweeting, hopefully by that time their name will still be free on Twitter.

    One piece of advice I would give anybody not on Twitter or not active on Twitter, get over to Twitter and take your name, otherwise, one day when you decide to become active on Twitter your name might not be there.

    All the best,

    Andy.
