What do you know about any of your followers?


Image via simplify360.com

Do you know anything about those who follow you on Twitter? What’s there role at their job? Where do they live? Are they married? Do they have kids? What are the common words that connect your followers?


I’m a subscriber to the SocialBro marketing tool and learned the following about 7919 of my Twitter followers. (I generated these stats a few weeks ago using data pulled from SocialBro). I learned quite a bit in a short period of time. For instance, I learned more people label themselves a geek vs. a nerd! :)

The First 48 Hours of #HIT99

John Lynn - aka @techguy - announced the other day that the Voting for the #HIT99 Starts Now.

So after about 48 hours, there have been 800 tweets containing the #HIT99 hashtag. Of these tweets, 177 people made 188 distinct nominations. The top 20 nominators and nominees are shown in the above table.

Note: Tweets containing the #HIT100 hashtag will be merged into the overall dataset going forward and used in tallying nominations.

What’s the Value of the #HIT99?

@matt_r_fisher: Agree, as was said earlier, I like this process to find new people to follow and connect with. #HIT99 https://t.co/fk20cUr6U3

@ehrandhit: Agreed. Not to mention who maybe doesn't make the list, but is nominated. We've got ideas there. #HIT99 http://t.co/xnbGeRV4om

@ehrandhit: Discoveries like this is why I love the #HIT99 It's fetching awesome to discover new people. http://t.co/aa6GIIL8pp

@ehrandhit: I wonder if there are any people worthy of the #HIT99 that aren't on Twitter? Maybe active on LinkedIn or other social media.


@fqure: The value of a #HIT99 is not to see who made the list, rather how much list has changed year over year. Unchanged warns of an echo chamber

Priorities, Priorities!

@mandibpro: When I'm done with my wedding errands, I'll be reading up on this #HIT99 thing... @techguy is da bomb.


A Volunteer to be the 100th Man Left Out!

 
@boltyboy: @techguy You mean we finally got rid of that stupid #HIT100 and you had to not only start it up again, you had to diss one person! #hit99

It’s All about a Person's Voice or Vision

 
@2healthguru: Just for me I will NOT nominate a corporate brand for #HIT100 or #HIT99 consideration. This need be an individual's voice or vision.

Go Vote!

@elinsilveous: How to nominate someone to the #HIT99 list: Tweet “I nominate [add Twitter account] to the #HIT99 list, because [fill in blank]"
