January 2015  100 Most Social CIOs on Twitter 2015on the Huffington Post

Vala Afshar … “Since I last published the most social CIOs of 2014 list , the role of the Chief Information Officer in leading digital business transformation has become even more vital. Championing adoption of new technologies requires CIOs to actively engage and communicate broadly. To stay informed, successful CIOs are leveraging social media as their personal learning networks. Most of the innovative CIOs that I work with are expanding their capabilities, as well as their organizations by 1. Independent research, 2. Peer collaboration via social networks and forums, and 3. Vendor and business partner engagements.”
