Massachusetts Politicians With Klout

In this week's issue of The Phoenix -- in print and online now -- I have a few things to check out. I have a feature looking at the race between state senate president Therese Murray and second-time Republican challenger Tom Keyes. I also have a column lamenting the lack of debates (and attention to debates) in Massachusetts congressional races.

And, I have a fun little item comparing the Klout scores (a measure of social-media influence) of the 13 Boston City Councilors.

But I know what you're thinking -- what are the Klout scores of other Massachusetts pols? Well, I've got your answer right here on the blog.

Here are all of the ones I know of with a Klout score of 50 or above (the scale goes to 100). These scores were as of a week ago, so some might have shifted slightly -- however, in the most heated battle, I can tell you that as of this morning Elizabeth Warren remains just barely ahead of Scott Brown.
