I enjoy Twitter. I find it a great way to stay in touch with others in the publishing industry, I also use it for news, sports and just general stuff.
I don’t follow many celebrities. I find them boring.
But the accounts with the most followers are generally celebrities… and many don’t even tweet that much.
The top ten (with followers).
- @justinbieber (37.3-million).
- @ladygaga (36.0-million).
- @katyperry (34.8-million).
- @BarackObama (29.6-million).
- @rihanna (29.1-million).
- @YouTube (26.1-million).
- @taylorswift13 (26.0-million).
- @britneyspears (25.6-million).
- @shakari (20.3-million).
- @jtimberlake (20.7-million).
Bieber actually tweets with over 21,000. But five of the top 10 have less than 2,500 tweets. That is barely saying anything.
Only one of the top is an organization – YouTube.
8 of the top 10 are musicians. All of them are under 30.
President Obama is the only serious one on the list.
I am closing in on 800 followers! Thank you. I have sent over 11,000 tweets. I have a ways to go to join the top 10!!!
