The 2015 #HIT99 event was held over the period of July 6th through July 27th with results published here. The following are a few tweets related to the #HIT99 event that I thought were interesting, insightful or funny.
The 100th Person
@thenerdynurse: I personally feel bad for that one person who makes it on #HIT100 but doesn’t make #HIT99
Guess who the 100th person was that @thenerdynurse was so worried about getting left out of the #HIT99? That’s right! @boltyboy!
What’s to Like About #HIT99?
@ctrappe: Lists like #HIT99 help me connect with new people, stay connected to existing friends and show appreciation through nominations.
@thenerdynurse: #HIT100 and #HIT99 help my identify thought leaders and trusted sources on news and opinions that matter to me right now #hitsm
@fqure: The value of a #HIT99 is not to see who made the list, rather how much list has changed year over year. Unchanged warns of an echo chamber.
@thenerdynurse: #HIT100 & #HIT99 are great resources for people who are new to the #HIT industry. Need though beacons to guide you. #hitsm
@erinhead_him: T1: #HIT99 is almost like the S&P500- know who to watch and what they are doing for success!
@healthiscool: Enjoy the discovery process for new connections via meaningful #HIT99 nominations – not so much the popularity aspect
@ehrandhit: T1: I’ve often said that #HIT100 and #HIT99 were about social discovery and gratitude to me. I love both of those things. #HITsm
@boltyboy: Apparently #HIT99 & #hit100 lists are eating each other. Which from my anti-list view is amusing
@ehrandhit: I wonder if there are any people worthy of the #HIT99 that aren’t on Twitter? Maybe active on LinkedIn or other social media.
What Would be Changed?
@ehrandhit: I’d like to see more “outliers” nominated to the #HIT100 #HIT99 as well. #HITsm http://t.co/ILsVicvC2D
@motorcycle_guy: I hate apparent rivalry b/w #HIT100 & #HIT99 founders that I’ve heard in a fairly 1-sided way via #HITsm. Hopefully that’s done with #hitsm
