Introducing the 2011 #MRX Tweet Awards

We love Twitter, especially the #MRX community. It is a constant source of insight and inspiration for us here at Research (@researchlive), so we were looking for some way to reward those who always have so much good stuff to share.

When Jon Puleston of GMI (@jonpuleston) approached us with the idea of running an #MRX Awards we were only too happy to get involved.

And here it is: The 2011 #MRX Tweet Awards – your chance to vote for your favourite market research tweeter.

Jon’s put together a shortlist of the top 20 most re-tweeted individuals who use the #MRX hashtag (as logged by Twapper Keeper). Using the survey link below, please vote for your favourite. In addition, you can nominate one of your own – but please note that the award is only for individuals or companies in the business of buying or selling MR services.

VOTING IS NOW CLOSED

 

The nominees:

 

VOTING IS NOW CLOSED

The survey will remain open until 9.30am GMT on Wednesday 14 December. Winners will be announced soon after.

Alongside the awards, we are also working with Jason Brownlee of Dollywagon (@Dollywaggon) to analyse the #MRX twittersphere, mapping the connections, shares and hot topics of conversation. Stay tuned for more on this.

Thanks for reading and for taking the time to vote. And please do share this article with your own Twitter followers if you think it’s of interest.

  • Will the winner be fired for wasting too much time at work?

  • Great idea. OK... Just spent 10 minutes making sure I am following all so I can make an informed decision! I'm sure time well spent (don't let me down short-list).

  • It appears that you can vote as many times as you want. So I can vote for all of my friends without feeling guilty!

  • Terrible survey. Using quantity (of tweets) as a premise for quality is shockingly lazy.

    Just to answer some of the recent comments:

    @Reg Baker – yes you can, but we'd hope researchers of all people would play fair.

    To explain, we did try out an IP-blocker to ensure only one vote per person, but as most people will be voting from their work machine that would mean, in effect, only one vote per company because of shared IP addresses.

    Rest assured, though, we have other ways of flagging and adjusting for attempts to game the system.

    Which leads me on to @Aristha – only your first vote will count, but thanks for taking part.

    And, finally, @Bandhar – the nominees are those who have produced the most re-tweeted #MRX tweets of the past year. This may or may not mean they are the most prolific tweeters.
