The 20 Most Popular Brands On Twitter [STATS]

@YouTube remains the top, most-followed brand on Twitter, with its more than 37 million followers placing it well ahead of all other brands, including the official @Twitter profile.

@Twitter isn’t even second on its own network – that space has been reserved for @Instagram, although both are a long way behind @YouTube. Social media profiles continue to dominate Twitter, accounting for six of the first seven spots.

In other news, @nytimes and @MTV swap places in the #10 and #11 positions and there’s a new entry at #20 for @SamsungMobile.
