Which big names use Drupal?

I saw a post recently about another Drupal 8 site that got launched. It was Rainforest Alliance. Nothing special at first. But then, out of curiosity, I clicked on it and checked it. While I was admiring the impressive pictures of the forests, I suddenly remembered that over a month ago I read an article about city of Boston launching its website on Drupal. Then it hit me.

Content on Drupal and Wordpress

Before I found myself in marketing, I was a journalist. I have written many blogs and other journalistic articles in my career. Practically all of them were written either on Drupal or in Wordpress. Ok, there were exceptions, when I was writing for the newspaper, but we are talking here about writing for digital platforms.
