Top 60 Twitter Influencers in India
Before we dig deeper into Twitterverse, let's take a step back and look at why we're talking about influencer marketing so much. We ran a search for the term "influencer marketing" on Google trends and here is what we found.
Influencer marketing has been on the rise in India for the past 5 years, but the current COVID situation has only added to the hype about influencer marketing. The biggest peak for the term occured in May this year. That gives us something to think about of course - so if you're a brand or an agency looking at slashing your influencer marketing budget, maybe it's time to revisit this strategy?
Influencer marketing and Covid
The current crisis in the country means that brands and agencies alike have had to cut down on their budgets for every channel except digital. Conventional marketing involved shoots, videos and billboards which are a distant dream today. What is definitely possible is anything that involves contactless production of content and its distribution. Enter digital. An analysis done by Nielsen recently shows that time spent on social media, per week, per user has been up by 25% - which is a huge spike and a majority of this comes from tier II and tier III cities. This is big news for influencer marketing.
Influencers are master content creators and they're also masters of the digital universe. Not only do they have the ability to create extremely relevant content, they also have the ability to shoot everything from scratch and make it from the comfort of their own homes. This means that people who are turning to social media for entertainment will not only find what they're looking for - they'll also enjoy it.
Infact, influencers can save your brand from being forgotten after the Covid situation.
Our top Twitter influencers
How do we identify what's the "top" influencers look like? Is it by their reach? Their number of followers? Their engagement? Let me answer that for you before we share our list.
I ran a "Twitter only" search for the top influencers for various industries - eg. fashion, travel etc. Mind you, all of these people are those who have the various industries they work in, within their bio. For eg., for food, I only looked for people who have "food blogger" in their bio. Of course, it's important to remember that a lot of the times influencers don't simply stick to their niche. If they have a large platform, they can use it for multiple things - eg., food and travel often go hand in hand. Or health and beauty.
I ordered all results according to engagement and viola! I found, the top 10 influencers per industry. Additionally, we've removed political figures from the results to make sure that the focus is only on content. So, without further ado, let's have a look at India's top influencers.

Every time I visit Social, I expect it won’t impress me much (no particular reason for this feeling). Every time I visit Social, it proves me wrong. Good theme, great food, and pocket-friendly. #Food #Gurgaon @SocialOffline pic.twitter.com/qe1xK0kzfg
