Sadr tops list of 10 politicians interacted with most on Twitter

Muqtada al-Sadr
Iraq’s Digital Media Center (DMC) announced on Wednesday the list of the top ten political figures who receive the most interaction among Twitter users in Iraq, with Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr taking the top spot.

"The selection of the 10 accounts was based on several criteria, including the amount of interaction that the account received when it tweets (through re-tweets, likes and replies), while the number of account followers has no relation to the selection criteria of the center," the Digital Media Center monitoring team stated.

"The account of Sadrist movement leader Muqtada al-Sadr is the one that has received the most interaction on the platform of Twitter for the accounts of Iraqi politicians, followed by the account of former Parliament Member Hanan al-Fatlawi and then the account of President Barham Salih," the center revealed.

The center explained, however, that the amount of interaction to tweets was not constant, as it is always changing due to various factors, including the number of followers of the accounts, the timing of the tweet and the use of hashtags. It added that there was some disparity between the Twitter and Facebook platforms.

Following is the ranking of the first ten Twitter accounts according to the Digital Media Center’s analysis and monitoring:
Muqtada al-Sadr
Hanan al-Fatlawi
Barham Salih
Ahmed al-Sadr
Qais al-Khazali
Massoud Barzani
Faiq Al-Sheikh Ali
Sarwa Abdul Wahid
Nouri al-Maliki
Abdul-Hussein Abtaan
