Tito Jackson is one of the most recently elected Boston City Councilors — he won a special election in 2010 to replace Chuck Turner — but he is already the most powerful.
Well, maybe not the most powerful, but he does have the most influence in social networking, according to Klout. That company's proprietary algorithm shows Jackson easily leading the 12 other councilors, including the four elected citywide.
Other relative newcomers to the council also have strong Klout scores — although not the newest addition, Frank Baker of Dorchester.
The top three are also black or Hispanic. But black councilor Charles Yancey doesn't even use social media enough to have a Klout score — one of the few things the Mattapan resident has in common with South Boston's Bill Linehan.
