CEO Twitter Scoreboard 2/1/2-16 – What’s Your Score?

image004Updated February 1 – 2016

The New Social Media Engaged CEO

“The ultimate value of any CEO is the price of the stock and social media can impact that.”

Another view is CEOs in Social Media Crisis Mode – The Compelling or Complacent Executive Officer.

Overview

In today’s business world, you are measured by many factors including the number of Twitter followers you have. In fact, many surveys have found that websites in general are perceived as passive customer communication tools with Twitter being a far more proactive customer-engaging tool. These surveys have also found an increasing number of customers go to your Twitter account before they go to your website doing “due diligence” on you looking for call-to-actions, thought leadership and content useful in their purchasing as well as customer complaints regarding your solution.

Your client may not have a Twitter business account but they may have a personal account and their advisors may as well. In today’s business world, you are measured by many factors including the number of Twitter followers you have. As noted Twitter expert Evan Kirstel just named #5 of Top B2B-Business-to-Business Influences more than 47K followers stated, “Twitter is the way to meet new prospects and partners. If you aren’t engaged, your competition likely is!” That is, CEO’s are beginning to see the real value of Twitter not just for their company but for their role as CEO in the company they run.

johnlegereOur vote for the CEO with the most social media impact is T-Mobile CEO John Legere (shown here) who has as you can see below increased the number of his Twitter followers 2015 by a whopping 2+ million followers up 120,00 in January alone and also increased the price of T-mobile stock quite a bit as well. Whether this is a direct correlation between his social media presence and stock price, we will let you decide but certainly a possibility.

NEW – After a review and inclusion of the CEO’s from the Harvard Business Review report on the best-performing CEOs in the world, we have added them to the CEO Twitter Scoreboard.
