The Twitter outlook

Sebastian Vettel’s victory may not mean much for Twitter considering Vettel is yet to have an account, whilst Lewis Hamilton has gone AWOL after saying that he is reconsidering his use of the service following his tweets concerning Jenson Button. In any event, let’s see who has gained the most followers in the past seven days…

Stay off Twitter, gain more followers! Possibly. Well, definitely for this week in the case of Hamilton.

A change in the top 10 further down, as Heikki Kovalainen exits the top 10 and Felipe Massa enters it after gradually moving up the list since the blog began in April. Massa is a certainty to move up into ninth next week. It is Kovalainen’s second loss in position in the past few weeks, however, as Pedro de la Rosa moved past him two weeks ago.
