CALGARY’S TOP 100 SOCIAL MEDIA INFLUENCERS

…according to me. I loved seeing Jay Palter’s Top 100 list yesterday (and seeing so many great people on that list that I know personally) so I thought I would create a list of MY top 100 influencers in Calgary. There are zero analytics tied to this, it is no particular order and it is totally based on my own opinion on whether these people somehow influence my online activities and/or daily life. I also feel that the people on this list are truly responsible for the very very good things about Calgary and are working hard to make it a great city to live/work/play/eat/drink in. Of course, I could easily make a list of 500 people who are just as great but you can just check out who I am following on Twitter for that.

Without any further adieu… the list!
