Tinchy Stryder tops i Twitter 100

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".
