CEO Twitter Scoreboard – October 1 Update

 © TECHtionary.com

Updated October 1 – 2017 (reflecting changes from July 1 – September 31 2017)

From Jack Dorsey – “When a leader, CEO or someone in a leadership position takes to the platform they have the opportunity to humanise their organisation, make it feel smaller and relatable to people.”

Produced by TECHtionary.com

The CEO Twitter Tech Scoreboard is designed to give you a benchmark of your Twitter performance as you can’t force people to Follow you and according to an increasing number of sources – customers visit your Twitter before they go to your website.  Gaining “meaningful followers” is a voluntary one, it is a good measure of “good will” you have in the marketplace you serve.

The Winner is !

The NEW Top Twitter CEO is Elon Musk with 13.2 million followers and CEO gainer with 355K NEW followers over the past three month and certainly the most engaged CEO with 3-Star rating.

In today’s business-political-social world, you are measured by many factors including the number of Twitter followers you have.  In fact, many surveys have found that websites in general are perceived as passive customer communication tools with Twitter being a far more proactive customer-engaging tool.  These surveys have also found an increasing number of customers go to your Twitter account before they go to your website doing “due diligence” on you looking for call-to-actions, thought leadership and content useful in their purchasing as well as customer complaints regarding your solution.  Your client may not have a Twitter business account but they may have a personal account and their advisors may as well.  You can also see how in some small way John Legere’s Twitter efforts have also impacted the price of the stock.

As noted Twitter expert Evan Kirstel just named Top B2B-Business-to-Business Influencer with 148K followers stated, “Twitter is not just way to meet new prospects and partners, it IS the way you run your company. If you aren’t engaged, your competition likely is!”  That is, CEO’s are beginning to see the real value of Twitter not just for their company but for their role as CEO in the company they run. 

 

The New Social Media Engaged CEO as “The ultimate value of any CEO is the price of the stock and social media can impact that.”
