Top 5 Social Media Influencers
5. Christiano Ronaldo (95.3M)
Cristiano Ronaldo is the only sports personality on the list. He's played for the Portuguese national team and for some of the world's top teams, including Juventus F.C, Real Madrid, and Manchester United.
Ronaldo is the 4th most influential individual on Twitter, with Lil Wayne, Jack Dorsey (the CEO of Twitter), and Usain Bolt among his followers.
His Twitter feed is very steady, with most of his latest posts consisting of photos of him and his family simply hanging out and doing whatever absurdly wealthy footballers do.
4. Rihanna (103.3M)
Rihanna, a megastar and beauty product entrepreneur, is another musician on our list (but far from the last). With a string of successes under her belt and her Fenty line growing in popularity, she has amassed a sizable Twitter following.
Rihanna's Twitter has also gotten a lot of attention, especially after she chastised Donald Trump for utilizing her music at his rallies.
Aside from the presidential squabbles, Rihanna's Twitter account features the usual promotional content, as well as more personal tweets like shoutouts to collaborators and political commentary.
3. Kate Perry(108.7M)
Katy Perry, the world-famous pop diva and female kisser, is in third place. Perry has risen from humble beginnings as a church singer to become one of the world's most popular musicians.
Perry is followed by four members of One Direction (Zayn being the only one who hasn't), Alicia Keys, and Neil Patrick Harris as the second most influential lady on Twitter.
Perry utilizes Twitter to share her own ideas and personal messages, rather than bombarding the feed with commercial tweets, which may explain her high count (although they come up every so often too).
2. Justin Bieber(114M)
Since his 2010 hit "Baby," Justin Bieber has been a near-constant presence. He's been in the spotlight since then, altering his style and appearance as he's grown older, and becoming one of the most famous people on the planet.
Jaden Smith, Queen Latifah, and Iggy Azalea are among Bieber's most famous fans. He's also Twitter's seventh most influential person.
In comparison to the others on this list, his actual account contains fewer promotional postings. Posts are few and far between, and they're just as likely to be random musings or the type of information that any other Twitter user may share.
1. Barack Obama(130.1M)
Barack Obama, the two-term President of the United States, is in first position. It should come as no surprise that occupying the world's most powerful post attracts a large following.
Obama usually tweets on his other pursuits now that his presidency is over, such as the work of his Obama Foundation.
Obama is the most followed person on Twitter, so congrats!
