Tinchy Stryder was the highest music entry in the i Twitter 100, the list of the most powerful Britons on Twitter compiled by i newspaper – the new national newspaper from The Independent.
Music entries included…
- Tinchy Stryder – 7
- Imogen Heap – 14
- Lily Allen – 36
- Marina Diamandis – 61
- Mark Ronson – 97
The list is the first time ever that the most influential, rather than most followed, people have been ranked. The workings are based on the number of re-tweets each person generates and the language associated with them.
Commenting on the results, Independent and i Editor-in-Chief Simon Kelner said, "Five years ago, Twitter was regarded as a passing fad. Today it is a phenomenon, influencing world events and news stories in every sphere of life. This inaugural list recognises the power of Twitter and those with the most influence".
