Portland-based Twitalyzer has released a new feature that allows users to rank Twitter folks for a demographic region by certain metrics, like influence, signal-to-noise ratio, generosity, velocity, and clout.
How do the Twitter types in Portland fare? Let’s take a look at the listings for today.
Here are the Top 100 Twitter types in Portland based on influence as of about 9:00 AM, today (but it has already changed—yay for dynamic data!):
And while there are a number of folks missing from the list whom I would expect to be there—like Marshall Kirkpatrick and some of the Top 30 tech Twitter types from the Portland area from last year—this is still a great way to discover some local folks who you might want to follow.
For the latest rankings, metrics, and the ability to slice and dice the lists for Portland—as well as a number of other geographic regions—visit Twitalyzer.

What would be cool, and really helpful is if you had your links open in a new window. TARGET = “_blank”
This list includes seedy characters from Portland, PA
Okay, I’m just going to say what the other 425 readers of this blog are thinking.
WHY AM I NOT ON THE LIST???
Also, I read Eric’s explanation. So I changed my location.
Still: WHY AM I NOT ON THE LIST??
I hate the world.
I made the list! Yeah me! 82nd… wow. 😐
Didn’t know I had any effect via Twitter. 🙂
@jmartens: To be included on a Twitalyzer geography list, like any other Twitter tool looking at geography, the Twitter user needs to have reference to the geography in their Twitter location. So, fer instance, if your friend is missing from the list and she a Twitalyzer influence score that would place her on the list for Portland … what does her Twitter location say? Yours says “Portland” but if hers says “Rose City” or “PDX” well we can’t match her to the geography.
Does that make sense?
Not that I’m saying people should change their Twitter “location” entry to reflect reality … but if they want to make these lists they’ll have to do that. IMHO dumb to do something you don’t want to just to be on a list 😉
Anyway, thanks for using Twitalyzer!

How do you create a new list based on different topics, e.g., Portland and marketing or Portland and media.
I don’t buy it. Number 100 has 130+ followers and is following ~100, and only 1,500 updates.
On top of that, the number of people missing from the list but would expect to be on it is staggering.

Last year’s list looks just as interesting as this year’s, when the infamous PDX Tech Event Singularity manifested in full form every Wednesday.
And we managed to lure last year’s Twitter #1, Hajime Kobayashi, out to Jive Software to talk at Refresh Portland 🙂
And now the links should (SHOULD!) be fixed
Links are currently borked. Just a moment por favor.
