How I made this list:

The Twitter list is powered by SocialBro, using Kred scores (a measure of influence). The LinkedIn search is powered by LinkedIn’s company search filtered for 1-5000 and 5000+ followers for companies in Leeds. I’ve focused on people heavily involved in data and companies that have strong data or analytics products.
