The wine industry has been one of the slowest industries to adopt internet-based technologies. There is a big opportunity for wine brands to engage directly with those who drink the wine. Relationships sell wine!
Earthsite Founder, Joey Shepp's twitter handle @SocialVenture was listed in the top 50 most connected tweeters in the world of social enterprise, commissioned by The Guardian Social Enterprise Network.
"Research commissioned by the Guardian Social Enterprise Network from social media consultancy Tweetminster shows us which Twitter players packed the most punches during a three-month period ending earlier this year.
Tweetminster sought to identify the 1000 most active social enterprise Twitter accounts by searching for the tweeters who tweeted most about relevant terms such as #socent and social investment. These 1000 accounts were then analysed, with the "most connected" accounts being the ones with the most followers out of this group of 1000.
Using that methodology, here are the top 50 most connected organisations and individuals on Twitter in social enterprise – the Lady Gagas and Justin Biebers of the socent world."
