This list was compiled by Jay Palter Social Advisory. It is based on an analysis of Twitter audience and engagement globally on the topic of payments. For more information on methodology, see below.

From digital disruption and technological innovation, to regulatory requirements and consumer demands, the payments space is one of the most exciting and rapidly changing business environments in financial services. However, the sheer volume and speed of these changes, as well as the increasingly globalized market in which payments innovation is occurring, make it challenging to stay abreast of relevant news and developments.

Industry-wide conferences, such as The Payment Canada SUMMIT (May 9-11, 2018 in Toronto), offer excellent opportunities to get caught up on key developments and network with innovators, experts and business leaders. (Register NOW and save 10% by using this code: 10FGS18SUMM)

In between these events and gatherings, social networks are playing an increasingly important role connecting the payments industry to news and information about innovation around the world and the people driving these changes.

Below, we’ve compiled a list of top social influencers who are leading online discussions and sharing of payments information, innovation and resources.

Methodology

It is common to want to know why some people are on the list and others are not, so let me explain the methodology used to compile this list.

First, I relied on a commercially available social media analytics tool (Little Bird) which offers powerful algorithms for analyzing large volumes of social media data. The software scores social media accounts that frequently communicate on topics related to “payments” and then looks at the inter-relationships among these people.

Second, I separated the results into individuals and organizational accounts because I want to focus on individual influencers, not brands. In most cases, the software does this, but there are some edge cases that require manual intervention and mistakes are sometimes made.

The important point is that this is not the only credible list of payments influencers online, but it is an excellent place to start.
