A reader passed on a link to this highly addictive and unscientific web site which quantifies the clout people have on Twitter.
It’s a 100-point scale, with higher being better, and the site claims to crunch over 35 variables to generate a number that “is highly correlated to clicks, comments and retweets.”
So, here are the rankings for some New York figures. In short, Bloomberg (71) does pretty well, but Anthony Weiner (76) looms large over us all.
If you find rankings for other politicos, stick them in the comments section.
