John Lynn – aka @techguy – announced the other day that the Voting for the #HIT99 Starts Now.
So after about 48 hours, there have been 800 tweets containing the #HIT99 hashtag. Of these tweets, 177 people made 188 distinct nominations. The top 20 nominators and nominees are shown in the above table.
Note: Tweets containing the #HIT100 hashtag will be merged into the overall dataset going forward and used in tallying nominations.
What’s the Value of the #HIT99?
@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.
@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
@mandibpro: When I’m done with my wedding errands, I’ll be reading up on this #HIT99 thing… @techguy is da bomb.
A Volunteer to be the 100th Man Left Out!
@boltyboy: @techguy You mean we finally got rid of that stupid #HIT100 and you had to not only start it up again, you had to diss one person! #hit99
It’s All about a Person’s Voice or Vision
@2healthguru: Just for me I will NOT nominate a corporate brand for #HIT100 or #HIT99 consideration. This need be an individual’s voice or vision.
@elinsilveous: How to nominate someone to the #HIT99 list: Tweet “I nominate [add Twitter account] to the #HIT99 list, because [fill in blank]”
