Florida’s Top Political Tweeters for April

in Uncategorized by

This is SaintPetersBlog‘s ranking of Florida’s Top Political Tweeters for April 2013.

At the top of the list — for the second month in a row —  is Congressman Dan Webster, who has improved his score by fourteen points over the last two months. Webster, perhaps surprisingly, ranked a point ahead of Senator Marco Rubio and Governor Rick Scott.

Elected officials and politicians dominate nine of the top ten spots on the list of Top Political Tweeters; MSNBC analyst Joy Ann Reid is the only non-politician to crack the Top 10.

The Tampa Bay Times‘ Craig Pittman, an avid user of Twitter, is the top ranking Florida journalist, coming in at #17 on the list. New media whiz Jordan Raynor and Democratic consultant to the political stars Steve Schale are the top-ranked operatives. And Progress Florida at #27 is the top ranked organization.

Other non-politicians in the Top 25 are Kenneth Quinell, Nick Egoroff, Rachel Pienta, and Peter Schorsch.

When it comes to determining the Top Tweeters, we prioritize quality, not quantity. The rankings are based on someone’s Klout score.  When someone engages with your content, Klout assesses that action in the context of the person’s own activity. These principles form the basis of their PeopleRank algorithm which determines your Score based on how many people you influence, how much you influence them and how influential they are.
