Randle Communications recently released their third annual Digital Influencer Report, tracking digital advocacy trends in 2019. Sad to say that the Capitol Weekly Podcast didn’t make the list, but we won’t hold that against them.

Randle worked with Zignal Labs, hotshots in the field of social media analysis, to produce data for the report. Short take: This year’s report found that digital advocacy is more essential to public affairs and the California Legislature than ever before. Nearly all 120 legislators, and all statewide elected officials are on Twitter; some, like state Sen. Lorena Gonzalez and Gov. Gavin Newsom, are thriving in the new social media environment.

John Howard and Tim Foster sat down with CEO Jeff Randle in his office at 500 Capitol Mall (with maybe the most spectacular view in Sacramento) to talk about the report and how Twitter has changed politics.
