7 of the 10 Most Followed People On Twitter Are Musicians

Not only that, the three biggest Twitter accounts are absolute tweet monsters:

Lady Gaga rules with 15.1 million followers, Justin Bieber with 13.9 million, and Katy Perry with 11.5 million.  That’s enough to beat a fourth-place Obama, according to stats shared by Twitaholic.

1. Lady Gaga (ladygaga)
15,117,972

2. Justin Bieber (justinbieber)
13,868,314

3. Katy Perry (katyperry)
11,511,972

4. Barack Obama (BarackObama)
10,872,247

5. Kim Kardashian (KimKardashian)
10,735,244

6. Britney Spears (britneyspears)
10,662,045

7. Shakira (shakira)
9,802,132

8. Rihanna (rihanna)

9. taylorswift13 (taylorswift13)
8,759,295

10. ashton kutcher (aplusk)

A deeper dive reveals some similarly musician-heavy stats.  Of the top 50 most followed accounts, 25 are musicians or heavily music-related.  That percentage starts to fade somewhat in the top 100, where 44 are musicians.

And #100?  That’d be Rev Run, whose greatest burst of fame happened decades before Twitter was even a hairbrained concept.
