Levie is famed in the tech industry for his eccentricity and his Twitter feed is no exception. Aside from his job as CEO of cloud storage company, Box, Aaron finds a lot of time to dedicate to Twitter to share his witty one-liners on tech with the world. His jokes are always on topic. Look at what he had to say about Flappy Bird's vanishing act.

Prior to his work with Illuminata and RedMonk, Governor worked as a tech journalist, so he has a way with words. Like Levie, he enjoys a joke on Twitter and he's not afraid to speak his mind. This results in some highly entertaining (often critical) tweets about the tech industry.
