Are You Also A Follower Of These Most Followed Twitter Accounts?
Technology is and has always been a big part of humanity’s quest to improve and innovate. Along with the development of electricity, technology has slowly but surely evolved over the years. Through technology, people can do many things like communicating with others, buying and selling goods and services, and sharing news articles.
In the earlier years of the entertainment industry, celebrities would often promote their projects and events through radio broadcasts, newspapers, TV broadcasts, and posters. However, in more recent years, thanks to social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter, celebrities can expand their promotion mediums by posting their future events and projects in their accounts. Furthermore, not only can they promote their many career ventures, but, through social media, celebrities can also communicate with millions of their fans worldwide. Most of the time, their influence and popularity are as proportional as the number of people that follow them in the many social media platforms within our grasps. For this article, we will be talking about celebrities with many followers on their Twitter accounts.
TWITTER – 58.3 MILLION FOLLOWERS
It comes with no surprise that the social media platform also has its own Twitter account. Besides announcing news regarding any updates on the platform, Twitter often tweets about world news.
Tweeting about public events seems like a relatively simple job to do. However, whoever is in charge of Twitter’s account undoubtedly deserves some credit for doing their job as enthusiastically as possible. In recent months, amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, people are highly encouraged to wear face masks when they’re outside of their homes. As its way of promoting and enforcing the safety protocol to the community, Twitter has made a few too many tweets encouraging its many followers to wear a face mask – not without adding a little humor on the tweets, of course.
YOUTUBE – 72.2 MILLION FOLLOWERS
Among the most-followed Twitter accounts in this article also includes one of the most-visited websites, YouTube. What started as a small website developed by three friends, Chad Hurley, Steve Chen, and Jawed Karim, has now become one of the most expensive investments ever made – the brand currently has a value of around $100 billion.
Even before Google bought it, YouTube was already the most-visited streaming site and even has a broader audience span than cable TV. For its Twitter account, YouTube would often tweet videos of its many “YouTubers” to promote their channels. And besides promoting YouTubers, the account tweets announcements and sometimes interacts with its many followers through polls and the like, which is one way for them to receive audience feedback to improve their streaming platform.
RIHANNA – 98.9MILLION FOLLOWERS
Through the years, Rihanna has shown her talent in singing with one hit record after another and is now one of the most influential artists. Another factor in her status as an iconic pop star is her public persona whenever she is under the spotlight. To help her maintain her public image, Rihanna even took an insurance policy of $1 million for her legs, which she believes to be her most significant assets.
With Rihanna’s immense popularity, it comes as no surprise that her Twitter account would have a proportionate amount of followers. Through her account, the singer would often tweet about her new projects, like a new record, tour, her fashion line Fenty, or even talk about her thoughts and opinions – and hopefully get a little fan interaction from that.
ARIANA GRANDE – 77.7 MILLION FOLLOWERS
After her growing popularity in the Nickelodeon show Victorious, Ariana Grande made a more prominent name for herself as a pop star who has since released many singles that have reached Billboard charts. And besides making her hit songs, Ariana Grande also actively participates in various charity events, often utilizing her talent in singing and collaborating with fellow artists like Miley Cyrus and Madonna.
With her Twitter account, Ariana Grande, like other artists, would often promote her many projects. Sometimes, by using her influence among her fans, she would also tweet about the many advocacies she follows and encourages her followers to engage in charity programs. Most of all, Ariana Grande also uses the account to give her fans credit for all the support they gave her throughout her career.
LADY GAGA – 82.2 MILLION FOLLOWERS
Lady Gaga is a well-known artist for her hit songs and ever-changing celebrity persona. And for her live performances, Lady Gaga is as good of a dancer as she is a talented singer, so much that’s it like her presence on stage is enough to supply electricity to the concert venue – quite similar to Madonna, one of her biggest inspirations. Outside of music, Lady Gaga also starred in the widely-loved film A Star is Born and in the miniseries American Horror Story: Hotel.
For her fan base, the singer would often call herself “Mother Monster,” while the fans are her “Little Monsters.” For her Twitter account, Lady Gaga mainly uses it to let her followers know of any new announcement or updates the singer has in her career, like a new record, album, event, or even charity program.
DEMI LOVATO – 55.5 MILLION FOLLOWERS
Demi Lovato and her celebrity best friend and fellow singer, Selena Gomez, started their careers in the entertainment industry at an early age when they starred in the kids’ show Barney & Friends. After a few years, Demi Lovato gained more popularity for her role in Disney’s Camp Rock films.
With the singer introduced to music at a very young age, it’s evident that her ever-growing talent is one of the biggest investments she has made – and it is undoubtedly paying off for her. And for the fans that have been following the singer throughout her career, Demi Lovato has her Twitter account as one of her other social media platforms to communicate with them. Besides posting about her advocacy on the importance of one’s mental health, the singer also updates her followers about her upcoming records and projects.
JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE – 64.2 MILLION FOLLOWERS
More often than not, many artists have their fair share of unusual achievements throughout their careers. In 2002, for his debut album Justified, Justin Timberlake was so immersed in the record’s production to the degree that he finished making the album without ever writing down his lyrics.
Justin Timberlake is very vocal about his thoughts and opinions in his Twitter account and would often share news or articles relevant to current events. Other than that, the singer would also post promotions for the projections that he participated in. But underneath the promotions and advocacies, Justin Timberlake would also take time to goof around on the platform and possibly make many of his fans’ days brighter – even for just a bit.
TAYLOR SWIFT – 87.2 MILLION FOLLOWERS
When Taylor Swift was still relatively unknown in her music career, she was once told by an interviewer that she can always be a hair model if ever she fails as a musician. Fortunately, in a more recent interview, that same interviewer apologized to Taylor Swift, especially since now she has earned many achievements under her credit. Now one of the music industry’s iconic singers in recent years, Taylor Swift has made quite a name for herself with her hit songs like You Belong With Me, Blank Space, and has recently released her new album folklore.
Through the years, Taylor Swift has gained a massive fan base. Though she doesn’t usually post much on her Twitter account, the singer has around 87.2 million followers patiently waiting for her new announcements.
NARENDRA MODI – 62.9MILLION FOLLOWERS
The 14th and current Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi, started his journey of becoming a politician at an early point in his life. When he was a teenager, Modi decided to go on a two-year adventure around the country to experience the many cultures that thrive in different regions. In 1978, Modi earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science and eventually finished his graduate studies on the same course.
Often considered one of India’s most technology-oriented leaders, Narendra Modi is a very active user of social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. For his Twitter account, Modi is one of the most followed-politicians globally and would often tweet about his political party, address India’s issues, and about their diplomatic relations with other countries.
ELON MUSK – 39.3 MILLION FOLLOWERS
If Marvel’s Tony Stark were a real person, he would be Elon Musk. Jon Favreau, the director of Marvel’s Iron Man, has stated that Elon Musk greatly inspired the movie version of Tony Stark’s character. The man who has made massive investments for many companies like PayPal, Tesla Motors, Solar City, and SpaceX, Elon Musk is one of the world’s most influential figures and never settles for second-best. On one occasion, after he wasn’t content with the schools his sons went to, Elon Musk purchased a mansion and renovated it into a school for his children and a few other students.
And like any influential modern-day figure, Elon Musk has his own Twitter account to showcase his current projects, share his thoughts and opinions, interact with his fans, and even post memes from time to time.
