Klout generated a list of the top 50 UK Klout influencers on social media for marketing and advertising for Brand Republic, and while there's been plenty of debate around the value of Klout's scoring as a measure of influence, at least it'll make your mum proud.

So how did the people on the list come to the attention of Klout's algorithm? How long do they spend on social media, and what platforms do they use?

We asked the people on the list, and based off the 24 replies we inferred the following advice:

Tweet between 0 and 20 times a day: That's what 78% of respondents do.
