Today Construction News exclusively published the first list of UK Construction people on twitter, both on their website and in print.
The list is collaboration between the Construction Network (@tCNtweets) and Peerindex, one of the new tools which has been developed to help evaluate influence and authority amongst users of the twitter social media platform.
Construction News has done a great job of collecting together a group of articles for their readers about what twitter is and why it is useful for the construction industry. They have also graciously taken most of the articles outside their usual paywall so that they can be shared online by non-CN readers.
The best thing about Construction News’ involvement is their elevated position as a print publication within the industry. Publishing the list in print brings the value of twitter to a much wider audience and will, I am sure, encourage many industry leaders to look again at what strategic goals tools like twitter might help them fulfil.

From this page you can also download an Excel spreadsheet of the top 100 and look at their detailed statistics.
Newbies might also find my Seven First Steps useful.
I’d urge you to take a look at the list and read the articles. If you have any questions, why not ask them here?
One thing that you’ll notice is that 15 of the top 20 most influential when I last looked were individual accounts, not organisations.
