An analysis of the 50 Most Influencial Tweeters on the Internet
It's no surprise the 50 most followed people on Twitter have a lot to say. But what is it they're saying? We analysed their last 1,000 tweets to understand the common trends that emerge at the top of the Twittersphere.
Types of Tweets
The 50 most followed profiles were taken from Twitter excluding general news sites, and group profiles. We pulled and scraped their last 1000 tweets (as of 18/1/18). The retweets and favourites from each tweet were taken to create averages then each tweet was compiled to create a word cloud. The tweets were then analysed and put into four categories; self-promotion, industry related, socio-political and general/personal.
