I have created a list which contains the 100 most influential news media Twitter accounts.

This isn’t just a list from some social media guru – it is based on a Cornell University study into what makes an account influential, a study conducted to the highest standards of scientific standards.

The study is based on how much traffic a tweeted URL received. To read more check out the paper here.

*At present there are a lot of American news accounts – so I may have to remove some of them if they clutter up the stream.

Hope this is useful…
