Twitter is a highly visible social media platform that can be used as a measure of influence and ‘Klout’ on the world wide web. The question of what makes a person influential on Twitter has tweaked my interest since October 2009 when I started a poll that asked “What makes a Brand or Person Influential on Twitter?“.
There are many different Twitter tools that attempt to measure influence.
Klout is maybe the most popular and to date has measured over 75 million Twitter profiles and analyzes more than 3 billion relationships and 250 million pieces of content every 24 hours.
