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.

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