I wouldn't advise people to seek out "influential" Twitterers, any more than I would advise trying to suck up to "influential" people in real life. The best way to be "influential" on Twitter, as in real life, is to be yourself, be an original. The people you should seek out on Twitter aren't the "stars" who often aren't very influential at all. The people you should seek out are people you like, and enjoy.

This is a really helpful article - came across it on Digg as I'm looking at building a Twitter following, but also whose tweets to follow in my niche

I always thought of TwitterCounter as just a way to track your following, but with the search and the Top 100 list make it very useful for finding people in your industry.

Very true! I remember someone was confused as to why their tweet had gone viral, and I did the Topsy check and found out ProBlogger had tweeted it, which explained everything!

I think you have listed good ideas to catch attention of influential Tweeples. If even one of those influential Tweeple retweets your tweet then your tweet is surely meant to go viral. Thanks a lot Kristi :)

Twellow I am familiar with, but I'll have to check out Twellowhood as well. TwitterCounter does a Top 100 list of regional - just visit their site, click on Top 100 Users, and then use the dropdown to find your region - it lists users' bio, followers, following, and tweets.

Tweepi is a good one... I have used it before too. Basically you can search one Twitter user's followers and then check out their stats to see who is most influential based on retweets, mentions, followers vs. following, etc.

Another cool app is Tweepi (no affiliation) it allows you to measure by RT ratio or @mention count, etc. Very analytically focused.
