Top 20 UK dating influencers you really must follow

We decided to extend the Twitter tradition for #FollowFriday (where you share your favourite tweeters with friends) and investigate who are the big hitters amongst the UK dating twitterati, according to their social influence score compiled by Klout.

Klout ignores the number of followers you have and instead concentrates on the connections a twitter user has made, who follows them and how often their message gets spread to a wider audience. Ultimately it ignores the vanity of follower counts and ranks those whose word really counts.

If you're looking for influencers in the UK dating industry, these guys should be top of your list. They all post interesting stuff on just about everything to do with dating and we thoroughly recommend all of them for a follow...
