Bermuda’s Top 50 Twitter List For July 2016

July 6, 2016

[Written by Don Burgess]

It was an unusual month in the Bermuda Twittersphere as five of the top 11 accounts lost followers. Overall, 13 accounts that would have been in the top 50 saw their follower numbers go down.

Even the venerable John Layfield was stymied a bit as the WWE and FOX commentator only had a gain of about 1,500 followers. Duddley Duddley suffered the worst loss when Twitter cleaned his account and dropped 15,0000 followers from his total. Musician Heather Nova saw her account lose 1,000 followers as well.

Because of Duddley’s loss, Ledrew Fox and Oracle Team USA both moved up one spot each.

On a positive note, both Shaun Goater and the Bermuda Tourism Authority reached the 20,000 follower milestone. The BTA climbed past Mr. Goater into 13th place.

Flora Duffy, who just won her first ITU triathlon in Stockholm, jumped four places to 40th. The Rio Olympian is on a pace to reach 5,000 followers some time during the summer games in Brazil.

Joanne Ball-Burgess, a singer-songwriter and author, who is also a popular TV personality as Judge Joan on SakataMashariki, rejoined the Top 50 after not being on it for several months.

The numbers for this report were taken on July 2.
