  1. Hmmm – No Jay Baer, Brian Solis, or Clay Shirky? They’d make my list…in fact, you may have just inspired me to make one!

  2. I was hoping for some fresh faces with a bit of thought leadership.

  3. This list of influencers is very solid, however their influence stands alone, and was solid before Klout came along.

    Klout is not a game changer.

  4. This is my first blog post I am reading of yours… and certainly will not be my last. :)

    Great information!


    By the Way.. Does Makeuseof come even somewhat close to reaching the top 10? Everything they write is top notch

  5. Seeing as how I only have something like 56 followers its amazing to see this many. I think its a numbers game. I’ve followed blindly before but there is still something to be said for someone who has that many followers seeing as how the person with the most is only like 20 million. I’m pretty sure the thing that makes people follow you is very similar to the content that makes you retweet and share.

  6. I recognize 2 of the names and I need about 48,500 more followers to make the list. I guess my heart just isn’t in it.

  7. I think what distinguishes this list is that their followers probably actually do hang on their every word. It is the smaller accounts with 10,000-20,000 followers who probably have a lot of people who are not actually engaged.

  8. The top 10 seems to be an interesting group.

  9. Interesting top 10.

  10. Followers are one thing. I would love to see an in-depth study on how many people actually read, share and/or re-tweet the content from a particular social media blogger on a daily or weekly basis. In the end, content is king and good content will determine how much real time people spend on a site.
