Came across a list the other day, I wouldn’t expect to be on it so I can talk objectively about it, here are 10 things that made the list utter tosh.

  1. It has people in the top 10 that are not thought leaders.
  2. It had people in the top ten that had purchased followers.
  3. Amazing people like Mark Schaefer are way down the list
  4. Thought leaders like Neil Schaffer and Brian Solis aren’t even on it.
  5. You said you used a copy writer to check for mistakes, I hope you fired them as you had one individual on it twice.
  6. Brand and individuals should not be on the same list, it’s one or the other.
  7. People like Gary Vee are so off the dial, should they really be on the list?
  8. In the section where you describe your methodology you openly admit that you have “fudged” the figures.
  9. There are a number of people on it from a tech vendor, that nobody has heard of, could it be that this tech vendor paid for it?
  10. It’s full of a bunch of people nobody has ever heard of.
  11. I’m not on it.
