Thanks to tip from the folks at Advocacy Media, it looks like President Obama is the clear victor of Twitter lists (versus Mitt Romney).
Obama has 178,641 public lists following his official Twitter handle while Governor Romney has 12,773. In terms of reach, by number of public lists followers President Obama leads Governor Romney 1,680,596 to 8,302 public list followers. Keep in mind that Obama has a slight advantage in that he is already President and has successfully used social media in the past. That said, Romney is still really lacking in the list category. There’s a clear distinction in the number of Twitter followers, as well. Obama’s 21.5 million followers dwarf Romney’s 1.6 million (Obama also follows more than 600K people, while Romney follows a mere 274).
