Top Ten Tweople from Kerala

The twitter, free social networking and microblogging site is spreading like wildfire all over the world including India. India is in the top 5 countries by sheer number of twitter users, behind US, UK, Canada and Australia.Mumbai ranks 31 out of top 50 tweeting world cities. There are hell lots of people from Kerala who tweet. Here is a list of top 10 tweople (people who tweet) I compiled who hails from Kerala. I compiled this list based on the number of followers and the number of tweets they have done so far. The number of followers is the measure of how others value your presence in twitter and the number of tweets is the measure of how active you are in twitter. I am sure I may have missed some one who may be more active. In case you know of someone who is more active than the tweople in this list please let me know.

Dr Shashi Tharoor, Minister of State for External Affairs is the tweople with maximum number of followers in India. Right now he has over 19,000 followers. Tharoor has made it a point to tweet almost daily and his tweets provide insight to the day to day life of a politician/minister.

2 - K Sudhakaran @ksudhakaranMP

Another politician from Kerala in twitter, K Sudhakaran needs no introduction to the people of Kerala.
