All those who tweeted with the event hash tag #SxSC2 got into the event leaderboard. The players’ performance was ranked by their Twitter activity, Kred influence and Kred outreach weighted 40/30/30 correspondingly. The trendiness attracted lots of spambots, which were easily excluded from within the Leaderboarded application.
The leaderboard included 149 players who produced over 1100 tweets within the 7 hours from the launch of the event. The Kred Outreach peaked at 5 points and Kred Influence score peaked at 584, which is higher than 67-79% of all twitter users.

We haven’t seen quite a response at informal conferences before, where the discussion got picked up very fast from the first half hour after the opening and steadily grew all the time, although, understandably, slower during the lunch time.
There were a few tweets about the event hash tag being top trending in the UK, which is a target point and something we are close to guaranteeing to customers who use our leaderboards at events in a very transparent way. Congrats to the top influential players who took part in the event!
For those who haven’t heard of the event before, Creative DigiFest is an informal gathering organised by University of Southampton aimed at promoting knowledge sharing among Creative Industries and Digital Media specialists and enthusiasts.
