297,897 Social Media Gurus

B.L. Ochman, writing in June of this year: Twitter bios show epic growth — to 297,897 — of self-proclaimed social media gurus.

The list now tops 297,897 — up from a mere 16,000 when we first started tracking them in 2009.

By January, 2013, the count has swelled to 181,000, causing us to note that social media experts were multiplying like rabbits.
