Love to tweet? So do these famous names - London most influential tweeters revealed

If you love to tweet - chances are you've still got some way to go to beat this lot. The official list of London's most influential tweeters has been revealed.

PeerIndex has analysed millions of tweets to find out who we listen to most in the capital.

For the London 100, we focussed only on whether other people in the capital were responding to, retweeting or engaging with a tweeter.

Our maths also assesses who the people engaging with an influencer are. So a retweet from someone highly influential is worth more than a retweet from an average person.

The number of followers does not factor in the weighting. We crunched around 10bn tweets and looked at more than 150m accounts on Twitter to generate this list.
