Alexis Cassey collects the top award from Twitter’s Georgina Parnell

CAR DEALER Magazine can today reveal the Top 150 Most Influential Dealers on Twitter.

Announced at this year’s record breaking Car Dealer Expo CDX15 at an exclusive invite-only session, we can now reveal the list in full.

The original and much-copied Twitter 150 list has been highly-anticipated by the motor trade with many dealers turning up at our Expo to find out where they placed before anyone else.

Georgina Parnell from Twitter UK handed out the awards to our best-placed dealers and hosted a Q&A session with the delegates. Scott Sinclair from Google also spoke to our special guests.

Prestige Diesels were this year’s overall winner, climbing from second to the top spot with an impressive margin of four Klout points.

The awards we handed out included:

Most Influential Dealer 2015 

This year Prestige Diesels (@PrestigeDiesels) climbed to top of the list with a Klout score of 73!

Most Influential Franchised Dealer 2015 

Last year’s winner Perrys (@perrysmotors) have maintained their spot as the most influential franchised dealer. 

Most Influential Independent Dealer 2015

Alexis, who runs the Prestige Diesels account, is also our most influential independent dealer of the year.

Best Follower Ratio 2015

With over 32,000 followers, despite following less than 500 Twitter accounts, Captain Caralot (@CaptainCaralot) has the best follower ratio on this year’s list.

Highest Climber 2015 

Climbing 62 places on our list makes Greenhous (@greenhous) the most improved dealer on our list.

Tweeters Tweeter of the Year 2015

We asked the dealers in our session to vote for who had stood out on Twitter to them this year and the winner was Ridgeway Group (@ridgewaygroup)!

Finally, the award for the best Twitter photo from CDX15 went to this tweet by Ridgeway Group.

What is Klout?

We use Klout to measure how influential you are on the popular social media site. If you had the same score as someone else we then moved on to how many followers. A Klout score is a number given between one and 100, which takes into consideration a user’s interaction on Twitter to work out their overall influence – the higher the number, the more influential the user.
