Okta CEO and co-founder Todd McKinnon says that when it comes to IT influencers on Twitter, Box's Ben Haines tops his list. Here's why: "He shares relevant articles about IT, engages with his followers, retweets industry leaders and occasionally throws in a joke or personal tweet," McKinnon says. "Ben also tweets out a daily newspaper which aggregates stories from the folks he follows. As he puts it in the paper's tagline, he 'tries to find the best of the best; the thought leaders, disruptive technologies, leadership advice and people interested in challenging the status quo and moving forward.' And he's got it down -- following him is basically like following a Twitter list of IT experts, and entertaining ones at that."

Bonus for hipsters and beer drinkers: Haines is the former CIO of Pabst Brewing Company.
