List of most-followed Twitter accounts

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search


Katy Perry is currently the most followed account on Twitter with nearly 107 million followers.

The list below contains the top 50 accounts with the largest number of followers on the social media platform Twitter.[1] American singer Katy Perry tops the list with nearly 107 million followers. Her account was the first to exceed 100 million followers, in June 2017.[2]

On July 12, 2018, Twitter purged locked accounts—those disabled due to suspicious activity—from follower-count tallies.[3] Consequently, Twitter’s own account took the fastest and greatest plunge out of all the top 50 accounts, from 63 million to 55 million followers, and in ranking, from 11th to 16th place.[4] Template:TOC level
