Twitter is firmly lodged in the center of media and politics. Though the company has stumbled several times over the past decade, it has also remained the social web’s connective sinew. As social media services evolved and became mainstream, then filled niches, one of Twitter’s many alcoves has been news and politics.

Over the next several weeks TechRepublic will publish a series of posts that explore how technological innovation can lead to competitive advantage in politics and campaigns.

This is a non-partisan, cursory list of interesting and influential presidential campaign staffers, intended to introduce readers to the people who help shape digital political strategy.
