ManageWP  wrote an article entitled, Show Your Love for the Top 100 WordPress Plugin Developers . I am ranked 5th on the charts =D
We’ve spent rather a lot of time gathering and sorting data for the top 100 WordPress plugin developers, based upon total number of downloads. Unless you are brand new to WordPress, it is likely that you use at least one plugin created by the developers below.
All you need to do is pick out one (or more) of your favorite developers, and take a moment to thank them. We’ve collected all of the Twitter accounts we could find, but we are sure you can find other ways of getting in touch if your chosen developer doesn’t have an account listed.
Firing off a quick tweet to thank a developer for developing great free products will only take a moment, so why not do it?
Furthermore, if you’re on the hunt for plugins to check out, you will find a comprehensive list below of the most popular plugins available for WordPress. Just remember to thank the developer if you start using one!
Thanks for the support guys =D
