SFU's Beedie gains Klout on Twitter

April 15, 2011

Simon Fraser University's Beedie School of Business lays claim to the highest-rated Klout score among Canadian business schools. Klout measures influence on Twitter by using a number of data points from the microblogging service, including follower counts, retweets, list memberships, and unique mentions. With a Klout score of 52 as of April 12, Beedie surpassed the University of Toronto's Rotman School of Business (51) and Concordia University's John Molson School of Business (47). Beedie began tweeting in early 2010 to stay connected with its many stakeholders. Since then, the school has used Twitter to follow and learn what the stakeholders are up to, to disseminate school news and research, and to further dialogue with this community. SFU News
