Who are the top email marketing influencers 2014?

By the way of speaking about the most read email marketing blogs: it’s also time to do a quick refresh of my recommended 250 Twitter follows (gleanings).

Explanation:

The list is ordered by the experts’ calculated network importance using an algorithm similar to Google’s PageRank. The first entry, Loren, is identified as most influential (again :-) ). This is also represented by node/text size and blue color in the network chart.

Every list entry shows a twitter handle plus a user description on mouse-over, which must include the keyword ‘email’. In brackets, there’s also the number of tweets per week (statuses / account_age), the number of followers and follows (as indicated by in/out arrows) and a link to the Twitter-list memberships and likes (indicated by a star) – feel free to explore the two latter ones, too.

Finally, don’t forget to…
