I’ve not done these lists for a few months now; it’s about time for another. The reason I do them from time to time is just to see how popularity and influence online can be quite different. That said, these lists are not without their own flaws, despite my best efforts to be objective. The influence one is particulary challenging because Klout does not rank be geography. So I’ve checked the Klout ranking of all the the top 20 listed on the Grader popularity score…then I mixed in the names of people who have contacted me to let me know if they think they should be included. All the Grader entries score a perfect 100.
The main requirement for inclusion is ensure you are listed on Grader’s Twitter ranking for Ottawa. 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 I’ve made any mistakes or omissions I do apologise. Leave a note about any in the comments and I’ll endeavour to fix it next time. And, remember…it’s all just a bit of fun!
