About this data (Methodology)

Over a couple of months we built a sample list of 1000 high profile industry professionals active and working in the e-commerce and delivery space.


From that sample list, we ran it through our custom research code and statistical tools to find out who are the people, publishers, and companies that most of these industry professionals follow and listen to.


This list is then ranked according to how many of the 1000 follow them.

The tens of thousands of results were then filtered down to the top 50 individuals and researched for additional profile data. This document also contains 15 additional influencers who just missed making the top 50.


Sources: The data is based on Twitter research and of course not all influential people are on social media (but most of them are).
