Jersey’s Most Influential Tweeters – Individuals

17 October, 2018
10–12 min

Here at Llama HQ we’ve been looking at who is having the greatest influence within Jersey’s Twittersphere.  Last week we looked at businesses, charities and groups, this week it’s the turn of the individuals!

Our list has been chosen on the basis of each account’s popularity, level of engagement, the quality of their posts and their relevance to Jersey life.  We’ve chosen ten accounts but these aren’t ranked in any particular order.  We’ve used external metrics as well as a bit of local knowledge to determine which to include, plus we’ve tried to mix things around so there aren’t too many accounts of the same ilk. Twitter stats correct at time of publication.

If you don’t agree with our list or feel we’ve left some stella Twitter users off the list then please let us know in the comments at the bottom of the post.

Stuff I learned from a night in A&E: people in waiting rooms are curious creatures, and medics are incredibly impressive. My column in today’s @JEPnews includes the phrase ‘tongue sandwich’. You’re welcome. pic.twitter.com/xG7zIJX9jz
