CIC Members Have Clout in Social Media

Jan 24, 2011

According to Klout, a popular social media analytics service, three CIC members rank among the nation's top 10 most influential colleges on Twitter.

The University of Wisconsin-Madison, University of Minnesota, and Indiana University were ranked No. 4, No. 9, and No. 10, respectively, as noted in a blog post by Klout on Jan. 17.

" ... Twitter influence is a revealing metric for colleges. The most influential ones must be both tech-savvy enough to have a well managed Twitter account and have the most influential professors, alums, and others engaging with them," the blog post reads.

Wisconsin is the highest ranked public institution on the list; the top-ranked university is Stanford.
