Last year MindTouch compiled a list of the most influential techcomm bloggers. This year I am pleased to present an even more robust list.
This year we’re providing:
- Top Listeners
- Most Influential (a variety of factors impact this, but the primary driver is being followed by topic insiders)
- Most Emergent (fastest growing in influence)
- Most Followed (on Twitter)
- Oldest (on Twitter)
- Most Frequent Tweeters
We also complied a Twitter List of the top 400 Twitter-ers and posted this for all to follow and enjoy. You can subscribe to this Twitter list here: twitter.com/MindTouch/techcomm-2011-influencers. The Twitter list is in no particular order, but you will find the top 10 lists below and tomorrow we will publish the entire list of top 400 sorted based on their influence.
Previously, our team spent literally weeks pouring over a variety of data sources including, but not limited to, Klout, Google Pagerank, Technorati Authority and Twitter. This year we had the benefit of a phenomenal social media analysis tool that hasn’t launched yet (contact me if you want early access). You can read more about this process in our preliminary post.
