JTA hired a consulting firm to determine the most influential Twitter users in the Jewish world. It used an algorithm where the top 1000 individuals were (somehow) identified and then the ones who most influenced the others on the list went to the top of the list.

Here is the list:

  1. William Daroff, The Jewish Federations of North America’s Washington office director, @Daroff
  2. Benjamin Netanyahu, Israeli prime minister, @netanyahu
  3. Avi Mayer, Jewish Agency spokesman, @AviMayer
  4. Danny Ayalon, former Israeli ambassador to the U.S., @DannyAyalon
  5. Peter Lerner, Israel Defense Forces spokesman, @LTCPeterLerner
  6. Jeffrey Goldberg, The Atlantic correspondent, @JeffreyGoldberg
  7. Ron Dermer, Israeli ambassador to the U.S., @AmbDermer
  8. Dan Shapiro, U.S. ambassador to Israel, @AmbShapiro
  9. Rabbi Jason Miller, rabbi, entrepreneur and writer, @RabbiJason
  10. Barak Ravid, Haaretz diplomatic correspondent, @BarakRavid
  11. Esther Kustanowitz, editorial director of Mayim Bialik’s Grok Nation and L.A. Jewish Journal contributing writer, @EstherK
  12. Avital Leibovich, American Jewish Committee in Israel director, @AvitalLeibovich
  13. Lahav Harkov, The Jerusalem Post Knesset correspondent, @LahavHarkov
  14. Michael Dickson, StandWithUs executive director, @michaeldickson
  15. David Horovitz, The Times of Israel founding editor, @davidhorovitz
  16. Arsen Ostrovsky, human rights lawyer and journalist, @Ostrov_A
  17. Mark Regev, Israeli ambassador to the United Kingdom, @MarkRegevPMO
  18. Rabbi Jonathan Sacks, rabbi, British lord and author, @rabbisacks
  19. Shimon Peres, former Israeli president and prime minister, @PresidentPeres
  20. Yair Rosenberg, Tablet magazine senior writer, @Yair_Rosenberg
  21. Adam Milstein, Israeli real estate investor and philanthropist, @AdamMilstein
  22. Reuven Rivlin, Israeli president, @PresidentRuvi
  23. Khaled Abu Toameh, Arab-Israeli journalist, @KhaledAbuToameh
  24. Peter Beinart, The Atlantic and National Journal contributor and Haaretz correspondent,@PeterBeinart
  25. David Haivri, Israeli settler activist, @haivri

I don't know if I made the top 1000 of the initial list - they stress that these are individuals, not organizations, and they might not consider EoZ to be a human being - but I did some analysis of the top 25.

Of those, I have more Twitter followers than six of them.

I am followed by eleven of them.

And I am blocked by one, Peter Beinart.

So apparently I have a fair amount of influence on the influencers. However, as Yair Rosenberg noted:


Anyway, this is a good list of people to follow.

JTA also published a list of 25 "guest stars" whose criteria are fuzzy, but they are worth checking out.

We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.

Elder of Ziyon - حـكـيـم صـهـيـون

This blog may be a labor of love for me, but it takes a lot of effort, time and money. For over 18 years and 38,000 articles I have been providing accurate, original news that would have remained unnoticed. I've written hundreds of scoops and sometimes my reporting ends up making a real difference. I appreciate any donations you can give to keep this blog going.
