The 20 Most Popular Brands On Twitter [STATS]

The 20 Most Popular Brands On Twitter [STATS]

@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.

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.

Meanwhile, @TwitPic continues to lose followers month-on-month, dropping about 8K in February, while @vineapp moves into Twitter’s top 20 for the first time, jumping straight into 17th place.
