The most influential LGBT Twitter users of 2011 have been announced
Stephen Fry has been named the most influential LGBT Twitter user in PinkNews.co.uk’s 2011 list. He told PinkNews.co.uk: “It’s a very remarkable honour to top such a list. Thank you.
Actors, comedians, equality activists and writers all feature in Pink News’s list of the top 50 most influential LGBT Twitter users of 2011.
Earlier this month, they asked for your nominations for the LGBT voices you listen to on the micro-blogging site. Pink News ran those nominations through the PeerIndex social media ranking system and the results are in.
PeerIndex measures how authoritative and interesting other people think a Twitter user is, as well as what topics and categories drive that interest, rather than focusing only on the number of followers each user has.
Below you will find the list of the top 5 Tweeters with their ranking, username and PeerIndex score in brackets, followed by their profession.
