@ElBloombito Leads New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo in Twitter Followers

@ElBloombito Leads New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo in Twitter Followers

It’s been less than a month since the Spanglish-language parody Twitter account of Michael Bloomberg was created and though it may not have more followers than the real Mike, @ElBloombito does beat out other politicians in the race for Twitter followers including New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.

We broke down the numbers for several politicians in the U.S. to see how they stack up against Senor Miguel Bloomberg. The official New York City Mayors office and Mike’s personal Bloomberg account have more and LA Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa has about 12K more followers. Trailing ElBloombito include Andrew Cuomo and the Mayors of Houston and Miami-Dade County.

Most of the Twitter accounts surveyed interact with others by ReTweeting messages and by including/direction messages using the @ symbol, but Andrew Cuomo and Mayor Gimenez of Miami-Dade County just broadcast information, but don’t interact which could partially explain low numbers. The Miami-Dade County Mayor was also recently elected to the post.

The chart below breaks out followers, following and when the account was started and also how many messages the politicians have Tweeted.
