Bermuda’s Top 50 Twitter List For April 2016

April 7, 2016

[Written by Don Burgess]

Two accounts have been dropped from the Bermuda Top 50 Twitter list for being inactive.

One reader asked why the Bermuda Sun was still on the list when it closed down in July 2014. The Sun’s account still has 6,570 followers and it is like a satellite in space that is no longer in use with its orbit is slowing deteriorating. Last month it lost nine followers, but at that rate it will take years before it is eclipsed from the Top 50.

So, after careful consideration, it’s been dropped, along with one other account that hasn’t been active since July 2015 to allow two active tweeters to join the list — Joanne Ball-Burgess and Artemis.bm.

Elsewhere, Ledrew Fox, who tweets about his faith in Christ and posts Biblical quotes, surpassed 50,000 followers. Musical group Thirdstory, which has Bermudian Ben Lusher in it, climbed past the 7,000 mark and jumped four spots to 27th.

Overall, WWE and FOX commentator John Layfield remains number one picking up 6,000 followers last month. Rounding out the top five are the America’s Cup, Collie Buddz, Don Burgess and Ledrew Fox.

One person to keep an eye out is Terri 2 Kool. She is 62nd overall and is making a name for herself in social media circles. Based out of Atlanta, this young Bermudian has her own blog at www.terri2kool.com.

She recently participated in an online live Blab session with one of Jenn Herman – @jennstrends – who has won the Social Media Examiner’s Top 10 Social Media Blog for the past three years. Terri is bright, articulate and representing the 441 in a big way. Her blog is worth a read and you should go check her out.

The numbers for this report were taken on April 5.
