Burson-Marsteller has compiled a list of the 10 most influential political people in the U.S. on Twitter, based on data analysis from Klout.
Members of B-M’s global public affairs practice and its digital team first compiled a list of 1,000 Twitter influencers, then used Klout to narrow the list to the top ten.
The analysis is part of a study called “G20 Influencers,” which you can check out here. That study looks at the loudest voices on Twitter from the Group of 20 nations, including countries across the E.U., Mexico, Russia, and others)

Below, we’ve also got part of an infographic (the other part contained the information above) that gives further detail about the research.
Note: this study didn’t include the “non-frontrunner candidates” for President on the GOP side. The info was gathered during March 2012 and looks at a 90-day period. For China, which doesn’t use Twitter, the firm looked at Weibo.
