It was also just last week when Politico’s Patrick Gavin crafted a quality piece of journalism that ranked DC’s top ten Twits. We’re not quite sure what his magic formula for doing so was [insert the BCS controversy], considering he left out @thefix; one of DC’s favorite Twits.
And from the looks of it, the @TheFix ain’t happy about the snub. [The Basketball Player vs. The Vespa Rider]
Despite the fact that Politico’s Patrick Gavin saw fit to exclude the Fix’s from his list of most influential Twitterers in Washington (slap in the face!), we persist and — dare we say it — thrive in our tweeting.
Gavin did however manage to bang out a pretty comprehensive list.
The Top Ten Twits in DC:
According to our readers, we’re not the only ones trying to figure out how Claire McCaskill made the list. Not that we don’t appreciate our favorite politicians tweeting about dessert:
I confess.Big cheat on diet at dinner. Choclate mousse with raspberry sauce? I don’t think so.
But does that really make you an influential Tweeter?
We think the best way to figure out who the best DC/political Twits are is to let them battle it out in a March Madness style bracket. For instance:
Head to head match-ups will be based on the following:
1. Number of actual tweets
3. Interaction with other Twits
4. Stats complied from Twellow
4. oh, and @famousdc replies won’t hurt either
If you think you’re worthy or know somebody that is, drop their twitter handle in the box below and we’ll add them to the bracket.
