Hi Dorrine,
NBC San Diego is identifying the 20 most influential people in San Diego, and you’re one of the hundreds of nominees we’re looking at. It’s all a build-up to the launch of “The 20” in early 2011.

(Dorrine on Twitter @assignmentdesk1)

Who will be part of The 20? We’re working with Twitter to identify the people who are at the center of the conversation in San Diego right now. This list of 20 influencers won’t be static: As news breaks and different people make waves in the local conversation, we’ll swap names in and out.

What will it mean if we include your Twitter handle in The 20? For starters, you can tell your friends (and we’ll tell the city) that NBC San Diego has identified you as part of this exclusive group.

Think of it like a panel of people who care about the city: We’ll interact with panel members through everything from reTweets to on-air segments.

We’ll be talking to members on occasion as news dictates. If you’re added to The 20, your participation in interviews and panels would be voluntary and you will have no ongoing obligation.

We’re launching soon. If you have any Tweeps that you think deserve nomination, let us know.
