The 20 Most Popular Brands On Twitter [STATS]

The 20 Most Popular Brands On Twitter [STATS]

@YouTube maintains its position as the most popular brand on Twitter, with its more than 44 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 remain many millions 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 five of the first six spots.

This month, the chart remains unchanged except for @BBCBreaking and @vineapp who swap places at 14th and 15th respectively.
