Louth TD Gerry Adams has come fourth in a Twitter ‘power list’ that purports to rank Irish users according to the influence they exert on the “political and policy landscape” through their social media presence.

The Sinn Féin leader was the top ranking TD, with only economist David McWilliams, broadcaster Matt Cooper and website Politics.ie ahed of him.

Adams’ account has around 65,000 followers but is as well known for its quirky tweets about everything from rubber ducks to song lyrics as it is for its political messages.

The “Power100” list was compiled by the public relations agency Wilson Hartnell and political researchers Electionista.

Adams is one of only two TDs in the top 10, with the other being the sixth-placed Shane Ross.
