As I’d indicated last month, I’ve broadened the Twitter’s Top list to 20 this month. That’s because things are getting crowded at the top of the Grader (popularity) list and because there are lot more people in the Isle of Man now on Twitter. So there are a lot of new names on the lists. Interestingly, @jamesqtt enters the Grader list at number six. And, we have two new entries in the top ten on the TweetLevel (influence) list: @listen_to_dom makes an appearance at number four and @anaminela squeaks in at number 10.
I do these lists just as a bit of fun. But an important point underlines the exercise. Just because you are popular on Twitter (Grader) doesn’t mean you have influence (TweetLevel). And you don’t have to have thousands of followers to be regarded as influential.
To ensure you’re in with a chance of being included in next month’s table, make sure you list your Twitter profile on Twitter Grader. I use this as the basis for both lists. Remember, only profiles associated with a human name are included. That way regular folks are not competing with big brands and news services for visability.
If you’d like to improve your Twitter influence (TweetLevel) here’s a few tips:
- get people to retweet you more frequently – the posts you make and the number of people who follow what you say is critical.
- post regular and interesting content, time your posts to peak times and add hashtags to make it easier for people to find your tweets
- take time to talk to individuals and enjoy the conversation!
