100 Most Influential UK Football Tweeters

For more great pieces on the alternative side of sport check out the Coral news trivia archive

With the help of our friends at Peer Index, Coral have unveiled a definitive list of the 100 most influential tweeters in UK football.

To compile the list each person is assigned a PI-score; an influence score in the context of the Football Twittershere.

To create our list we crunched approximately 10bn tweets and looked at more than 100m accounts on Twitter. We’ve excluded corporate accounts and those belonging to football players.
