Top 10 community engagement influencers on Twitter

So, there are lots and lots of people tweeting about #communityengagement, #civicengagement, #publicengagement and the like. But who are the most influential community engagement tweeters?

To save you some time, I’ve done a search of the various search terms that relate to “community engagement” (including civic engagement, public engagement, citizen engagement, public involvement…).

This community engagement influencers list is based on a combination of Twitter handles’ page authority, domain authority, Twitter followers, retweet ratio, reply ratio and average retweets.

Inevitably a lot of the search results are irrelevant because of the very broad use of community engagement, so I’ve taken the liberty of compiling a top 10 list on community engagement influencers (in no particular order) from across the various search terms.
