Muscle arm bird

Obviously we had much more fun posting the 25 Twitter employees with the fewest followers. But they proved about as attention-getting for us as they are for themselves. Apparently all the internet wants is more lists of the most popular people.

To post such a dull, non-ironic “top 25″ list of the most-followed Twitter employees would mean sacrificing our principles and ignoring the tastes of our more loyal readers.

It would also mean lots of traffic.

Please enjoy the following list of the 25 most influential Twitter employees on Twitter!
