Analysis was based on six parameters.

  3. Post Engagement by the followers
  4. Post Engagement by the Author
  5. Followers Count
  6. Following Count

11. More Digital Marketing and SEO influencers to follow in twitter

I have given the above list based on certain parameters which I discuss in this blog post.

However, there are more twitter accounts you should follow if you are interested about the subject.

For example, some of these twitter accounts could not come to the top five just based on the fact that their engagement with the followers was low or they did not retweet at all.

Therefore based on the parameters I used for this particular analysis, I had to cut them off even though they had some quality content posted regularly.

So this is the list of influencers I considered and I recommend you to checkout their twitter accounts and follow them as well. Following list is not in any order.

Yes It was me at the last. I tweet valuable content on Business, Marketing and Tech.

Now, If you think I should add more influencers to the list, please comment below. I would love to hear from you.
