    cheers

  8. Brendan McCoy says:

    Noticed that the Burlington with 359 Followers is missing too – thats @burlington09 rather than @burlington (Sydney) or @burlingtonhotel (Kent) or @burlingtondublin (not taken) that you would expect !

  9. Emer says:

  11. Barry Hand says:

    Ranking by followers is a little bit of a falacy. http://twitter.com/thedhotel have over 1400 followers, but only 28 tweets….

    A better ranking method would include tweets, rt’s and conversations.

  12. Agree with you Barry regarding a more complete anaylsis, though its a bit harder to identify retweets and converstaions of all the accounts. Worth considering though!
    thanks,
    Laughlin

  13. Hi Emer,
    The list is now updated to include the Burlington,
    thanks,
    Laughlin

  14. Emer says:

    Thanks Laughlin!

  15. Very interesting list. Looks like us hoteliers need to get to work on Twitter! We actually have 57 followers – can we make the list?! http://twitter.com/CelticRossHotel

    Thanks,

    Helen.

  16. Hi Helen,
    you guys are on the list now. It’s early days still for hotels on twitter, but take some comfort in the fact that probably around 95% plus of hotels in Ireland aren’t even on twitter yet. So you are ahead of a lot of the competition!
    regards,
    Laughlin

  17. Siobhan says:

    thanks Laughlin, yes a Facebook one would be great!

    Cheers,

    Siobhan

  18. Well done on compiling this list, one for facebook would be great aswell as hotels seem to have embraced that a little bit better than twitter I think. More fans, more active etc.
    Many thanks,
    Ciara

    cheers

  24. Hey, Good blog you have here. I wanted to let you all know that I think Twitter is going to be one of the stronger networks because of the fact that it is supported by so many industries. I also think when Twitter introduces some of it’s new features, returning traffic will increase to show the real growth of the network.

    Anyway, I build a site that gives away great resources for Twitter that are 100% free, so come and visit and don’t be a stranger.

    Keep up the good work!
