One Direction top list of Twitter’s ‘most influential’ users


From Complete Music Update:

The list’s compiler PeerIndex reckons that Liam, Harry, Niall, Louis and Zayn, who rank highest to lowest in that order, each hold a greater individual sway over tweeters’ hearts, minds and click-throughs than, say, PM David Cameron, who places seventh in the chart. Underneath Ed Sheeran.

“The sheer volume of mentions and conversations generated by their legions of fans is hard to escape”, rules the survey, with PeerIndex founder Azeem Azhar piping up: “As Twitter has become more mainstream, the top 140 starts to resemble the contours of popular culture and power, the footballers, politicians and boybands”.
