    Editors note: A more recent version of this post exists! We have updated our top 100 market research influeners to follow for 2019. Click here to view the new post.

    Twitter has a thriving community of market researchers. In particular, the #mrx and #newmr Twitter communities collate some of the most innovative and interesting thinking from thought leaders in the market research industry. But who exactly are the most influential market researchers on Twitter? We wanted to find out, so employed the influence measurement tools available at Buzzsumo to find out.

    Though there was thousands of candidates, we focused on the top 100. These are the people you want to hear from - those that create and share thinking from the frontlines of market research and will have a hand in shaping the future of the industry. For the purposes of this list, we excluded syndications, companies and blogs. The final one hundred are all real people, tweeting their own ideas and thoughts about current trends in market research.
