Los 100 mejores «ecotuiteros»

Twitter se ha convertido en los últimos años en una gran herramienta para conocer más sobre los temas más relevantes relacionados con ambientalismo. Cientos de activistas, periodistas y demás expertos usan la red social para dar a conocer los problemas más apremientes y las soluciones más innovadoras. Es por eso que el portal Corporate Knights, en conjunto con Brandwatch, empresa especializada en el análisis de redes sociales, publicaron hace unas semanas un ranking de los cien mejores «ecotuiteros.»

El listado se decidió mediante una «calificación verde», calculada teniendo en cuenta tres factores: autoridad, audiencia y actividad. Entre las 10 mil personas analizadas, se armó una lista final con los cien mejores usuarios, entre los que se encuentran tanto individuos que han logrado tener una gran cantidad se seguires hasta ambientalistas profesionales. Así, dice al publicación, se logró reunir a quienes tienen la «mayor credibilidad verde» dentro de Twitter.

En el primer lugar se encuentra el periodista Bill McKibben, fundador de la organización independiente 350.org e impulsor de encontrar alternativas a los combustibles fósiles. McKibben se unió a Twitter en 2009 y en la actualidad cuenta con más de 150 mil seguidores, logrando una «calificación verde» casi perfecta de 94 de 100.

En segundo lugar está el columnista de The Guardian George Monbiot, con el mismo puntaje. Completando el top 5 están la activista de Greenpeace Irina Tikhomirova, la secretaria ejecutiva de la Convención Marco de las Naciones Unidas sobre el Cambio Climático Christiana Figueres y Judd Legum, director ejecutivo del sitio web Think Progress.

La lista es muy heterogénea, incluyendo al ex vicepresidente de Estados Unidos Al Gore, a la escritora Margaret Atwood y a las superestrellas de Hollywood Leonardo DiCaprio y Mark Ruffalo, pasando por grandes hombres de negocios como Elon Musk, Richard Branson, Michael Bloomberg y Bill Gates, pero quienes dominan el ranking son los periodistas.

Para facilitar que los lectores puedan seguir a los 100 usuarios, Corporate Knights creó un listado en la red social, además de publicar una tabla en la que aprecen los nombres reales, nombres de usuario, biografías de Twitter y la calificación de cada uno. Esta puede consultarse a continuación:
