Bermuda’s Top 50 Twitter List For Nov 2015

December 2, 2015

[Written by Don Burgess]

The star is dead. May the heart beat long.

Last month Twitter replaced its Favorite icon, the star, with a heart. The move has been three years in the making as the social media company was looking for a way to help increase engagement for users.

Part of the problem is some people were using the favorite as that would imply it was something great. Using a heart to imply a like is a lower standard that would be more inclusive. I’ll heart a lot of things that I wouldn’t call a ‘favorite’.

It is a smart move by Twitter that is already paying dividends.

Kevin Weil, Twitter’s senior VP of product, said in the first week after the change, like activity was up 9% for new users and 6% for old users.

In Bermuda, there was a lot of activity on the Top 50 Twitter List.

Several accounts lost chunks of followers in November. Dudley Freedom had a drop of nearly 6,000 but still remains fourth. Singer Twanee saw her follower count go from 6,600 to 3,900 and as a consequence dropped 12 spots from 31st to 43rd.

Elbow Beach Cycles had 1,600 followers disappear from their account and fell from 15th to 18th in the list.

There were several other accounts which lost more than 100 followers.

Bermuda’s most social cat, Walt_E_Bobs, was the biggest mover in the top 50 by going from 43rd to 39th with an additional 800 followers in November.

Footballer Nahki Wells cracked the top 10, pushing past Carina Azevedo.

The numbers for this report was taken on November 29-30.
