Most Followed Celebrity in Twitter

Twitter’s list is topped by Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift, Barack Obama and Rihanna.

Katy Perry

She grabbed the top spot just recently.  She only follows less than 200 Twitter accounts but it was not a deterrent for her to have more than 93.2 million followers.

Barack Obama

As the current (soon to be outgoing) President of The United States of America, it’s not surprising that he is in the top 5 most followed Twitter accounts.

We sure hope that 77.7 million followers are satisfied with his administration.


Nope, she didn’t have to “work work work” to gain more than 66.3 million followers. She just need to produce radio friendly songs.

We all love his funny and light moment photos.


In contrast to Vin’s jolly personality, the angry rapper Eminem has more than 91 million fans on Facebook.  He’s more humane on Facebook than on his rap songs at least.
