Looking for tweets from some of the top tastemakers in tech?

Klout, a company that measures users' influence on social networking sites, put together a ranking of the most influential tech CEOs on Twitter.

These chief executives don't necessarily need to have six-figure follower counts to have clout, according to Klout's ranking system.

Klout assigned each user a "Klout Score" that "measures incluence on a scale of 1 to 100, with 100 being the most influential." So what goes into that number? Klout explains that the score is based on data from social networks, including Foursquare, Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin, that is used to track the following:

How many people you influence; (True Reach)
How much you influence them; and (Amplification)
How influential they are (Network Score)

Take a look at which tech CEOs Klout deemed most influential on Twitter. No female tech CEOs made the list, so check out our suggestions for 27 women in tech to follow on Twitter (plus our readers' picks), as well as our list of female founders to follow.
