  1. As the Senior Analytics Trainer for Adobe, working with the Adobe Marketing Cloud Suite, I’m surprised that in all of these profiles there is very little mention of actual analysis or online behaviour study.
    Understanding your customer behaviour and the psychology of this is absolutely key but not mentioned in a single one of these.

    • Probably because none of them would have the first idea on how to do this. It’s a typical linkbait post of faux “influencers” who spend way too much time talking about themselves versus doing any real work.

  2. Interesting point Chris.

    And flattering as it is to be included in the list, I see no mention of how it was collated. KLout score? Twitter followers? Time on social media? Would just be nice to know.

    Cool how recent tweets are pulled into the post.

  3. Hi John

    In answer to you question this list was put together using Buzzsumo. The tool measures Twitter influence on a given topic through a range of factors including page authority, domain authority, followers, retweet ratio, reply ratio and average tweets. We narrowed our search down to be UK based as well.

    By no means is it a completely definitive list, but we checked out these influencers and thought that their Twitter profiles certainly provided insight that would be useful and interesting to many industry professionals.
