The Top Tweeters in BBQ

For good or bad, there’s always the ‘follower count’ that people look at for Twitter. I’m always interested in how many followers one has, but it’s not the key factor as to whether I will follow someone or not. One’s popularity, when it comes to social media, isn’t always based on one’s real world popularity. Sometimes all it takes is jumping on something in it’s infancy, but to continue to develop a following, especially when it comes to Twitter, you have to consistently put out good content and of course interact with your follower base.

When it comes to followers on Twitter, under the large umbrella of BBQ, there’s the undisputed champion Pork Barrel BBQ (well over 31,000 followers) and everyone else, but out of curiosity, and my penchant for creating tasks that drain my time, I decided to create a monthly list of 47 of the top twitter users according to their number of followers (you’ll see that I included people who tweet about BBQ and BBQ joints as well as BBQ joint and products that are related).

If I have missed anyone (and I know that I have) that should be on this list, please post below or tweet me I’ll be sure to update and/or add them to the next list (note all follower numbers are current as of 4/18/12.
