Abstract: A considerable part of social network analysis literature is dedicated to determining which individuals are to be considered as influential in particular social settings. Most established algorithms, such as Freeman and Katz- Bonacich centrality metrics, place emphasis on various structural properties of the social graph. Although this makes centrality metrics generic enough to be applied in virtually any setting, they are oblivious to the functionality of the underlying social network. This paper examines five social influence metrics designed especially for Twitter and their implementation in a Java client retrieving network information from a Neo4j server. Additionally, a sceheme is proposed for evaluating the performance of an influence ranking based on estimating the exponent of a Zipf model fitted to the ranking score.
