@YouTube remains the top, most-followed brand on Twitter, with its close to 38 million followers placing it well ahead of all other brands, including the official @Twitter profile.
Indeed, @Twitter isn’t even second on its own network – that space has long been reserved for @Instagram, although both are some distance behind @YouTube. There’s also quite a divide between Twitter’s top three and fourth-placed @cnnbrk. Social media profiles continue to dominate Twitter, accounting for six of the first seven spots.
In other news, @cnn and @UberSoc have swapped places at 7th and 8th respectively, @Google moves up a spot to 17th and @SamsungMobile has gained more than half a million followers in a month.
