Whose Tweets Have Influence?

As a reporter, I get a fair bit of P.R. junk in my email inbox. But I thought this was kind of interesting, and harmless enough to repeat, even if it’s off base. It’s from the folks at “influence-measurement” company Klout.com, indicating the people whose tweets and presence they think have the most impact on Twitter.

Incidentally, a note to the folks at Klout: If you want to accumulate influence yourself, you might want to learn the proper use of the word “evidentiary.” Jez sayin’.

Politics has been a dominant force on Twitter this year, evidentiary by the 2010 influencer wrap-up by Klout (the team measuring influence across social media): http://klout.com/blog/2010/12/most-influential-topics-of-2010/
