Who's the social media king of NY? Peer Index claims that it is Adam Schefter.We looked at how more than 200m active Twitter users tweeted using PiQ our social audience dashboard. We then filtered out all tweets not sent by people from New York state, and then modelled the patterns of influence amongst Twitter users in the city.Overall, we focussed on around 1.45m Twitter users in New York state, of whom an estimated 80% were in New York City itself. This group tweets on average 2.5m times per day and we looked over 30 days to February 24th.For New York’s Top Tweeters, we applied a special rule: only influence from other New Yorkers counted. Every area is a community, and New York stronger than most. So our top lists are the people who most influenced other people from New York. While we looked at twitter users across New York state, around 80% of those active were in New York City itself, and this itself was reflected in the the top tweeters.And any list with Joan Rivers, Yoko Ono, and Matt Harvey on it has to be accurate.NY Mag made the list all nice and Twitter followable (and focused).1@AdamSchefter2.7M2@realDonaldTrump2.5M3@jimmyfallon11.7M4@piersmorgan4M5@carmeloanthony4.5M6@FrencHMonTanA1.6M7@MikeBloomberg0.6M8@Nas1.4M9@darrenrovell0.4M10@ActionBronson0.2M11.@neiltyson1.7M12.@SpikeLee0.6M13.@BuzzFeedAndrew0.1M14.@LanaDelRey3.5M15.@brainpicker0.4M16.@NYGovCuomo0.1M17.@geoff_deweaver0.6M18.@I_Am_Iman0.3M19.@andersoncooper4.8M20.@JoeSantagato0.2M21.@FisolaNYDN0.06M22.@alanhahn0.05M23.@MattHarvey330.1M24.@billclinton1.6M25.@chrislhayes0.3M26.@HillaryClinton1.2M27.@aliciakeys18.5M28.@angelayee0.4M29.@WendyWilliams1.1M30.@AntDeRosa0.07M31.@TalibKweli0.8M32.@SenGillibrand0.1M33.@brianstelter0.2M34.@yokoono4.7M35.@wwwbigbaldhead0.9M36.@Joan_Rivers2M37.@cc6600.07M38.@FrankieJGrande0.5M39.@fivethirtyeight0.7M40.@maddow2.8M41.@drob300.1M42.@MHarrisPerry0.3M43.@jonheymanCBS0.3M44.@MichelleDBeadle0.8M45.@LilKim1.2M46.@Bethenny1.3M47.@deBlasioNYC0.5M48.@katiecouric1M49.@johnfugelsang0.1M50.@rachbarnhart0.02M**Follow us on Twitter, Subscribe by Email, View via Our Mobile Site, or Return Home
