We’ve tuned out the HR noise to bring you the worthwhile voices on Twitter: the real thinkers, the content creators, the powerhouse recruiters, small business leaders, and entrepreneurs. We’ve also had a stab at measuring their reach.
To determine the size and level of engagement in each influencer’s audience, we used their Twitter follower count and two recognized social influence measuring tools, Klout and Kred. The more the audience engages with the influencers content, the higher their Klout and Kred scores are.
Learn more about the metrics and tools we used.
Here’s a quick legend for the metrics we used:
