Katy Perry, who became the first Twitter user to reach 50 million followers in January of this year, continues to reign supreme as the Queen of Twitter, with a lead of more than one million followers over second-placed (and former number one) Justin Bieber, who also reached 50 million followers earlier this month.
The relationship between Twitter and television is important for both parties, even if there’s a bit of a disconnect between the sorts of shows real people are watching in their homes and what they’re actually talking about on social media. For example, The Big Bang Theory gets 20 million viewers week in, week out, but nobody is really talking about it on Twitter.
Conversely, a show like The Walking Dead, which has about half Big Bang’s audience, dominates social discourse, ranking as the top show on Twitter every time it airs.
That is, except this week. Except for the Oscars.
@YouTube remains the top, most-followed brand on Twitter, with its 40+ million followers placing it well ahead of all other brands, including the official @Twitter profile.

The 86th Academy Awards took place yesterday with luminaries from the world of cinema gathering together to honour the actors, movies and technical achievements in film in 2013. The event was hosted by Ellen Degeneres who made extensive use of Twitter to share updates and photos via her @TheEllenShow account, with one celebrity-packed selfie in particular being retweeted more times than any other tweet shared on Twitter.
