Meet the Top 100 Twitter users in Portland at Beer and Blog

Meet the Top 100 Twitter users in Portland at Beer and Blog

Ah, Twitter. If there’s one thing I know about Twitter and Portland it’s this: Portland loves Twitter. It’s helped our community band together, it’s helped us monitor the weather, and it’s helped inspire new products—like TwitterLocal and Twitalyzer. Heck, we even have Rael Dornfest, the guy engineering our Twitter user experience, here in town.

Twitter and Portland were made for each other.

But when I start thinking about Portland and Twitter there it always leads to questions. Who else in Portland is using Twitter? Who am I missing? Who are the most active and influential people in Portland on Twitter?

Leave it to Twitalyzer, the Portland-based Twitter analysis tool, to answer that question.

They’ve managed to create a list of the top 100 Twitter users in Portland. And with the help of Beer and Blog—our favorite geeky happy hour—they want to bring the top 100 Portland Twitter users together, this Friday.

The creator of Twitalyzer Eric Peterson, consultant and author of Web Analytics Demystified and Web Site Measurement Hacks, will be there to explain his online service. He will also be generously treating each of the 100 most influential among us to a free, refreshing beer. Yay!

Are you on the list? Let’s find out! Eric froze the top 100 list last Friday, and here’s what we’ve got:

Now, we had to weed the list a little bit for bots and Portland, Maine, and whatnot. But we may have missed some. So if you find a discrepancy or mistake, please let me know and I’ll correct the list.

But see, here’s the thing. Any number of these folks have never been to Beer and Blog, may have never heard of Beer and Blog, or may not be following any Beer and Blog regulars.

So here’s where you can help: if you’re following one of the people on the list, please send them a tweet and let them know about the get together. If we can pull this off, it’s going to be an amazing gathering. Like Guinness Book of World Records sort of stuff.

I know you can do it Portland. Because you love Twitter. And beer. Especially free beer.

Oh. And any Portland-area resident who feels like they were unjustly—or simply accidentally—left off the list due to a slight location discrepancy? I’ll be happy to buy you a beer or another beverage of your choice. I’m looking at you @ahockley and you @jabancroft.

Looking forward to seeing you on Friday.
