Gaga is still the Queen of all Twitter at just over 31 million followers but not by much, Justin Bieber is right behind her at just over 30 million followers. These two have amassed over 20 million Twitter followers in just over one year. Check them out back in 2011 when they just reached 10 million followers (Twitter 10 Million Follower Club: Barack, Britney, Katy & Kim)
One thing that has also changed is the Klout status of Justin Bieber. Back in 2011 he was at 100% , 10 percentage points above Lady Gaga. Justin’s influence has dropped down to 91% and Gaga has grown hers to 93% over the last year. Not sure why this has happened but chances are Justin is just in an influence slump and all the Twitter Monsters of Gaga are paying more attention to her Twitter feed.
One the heels of these two Twitter powerhouses is one Katy Perry at just over 29 million. Rihanna and our POTUS, Barack Obama round out the top 5. One person who has dropped almost out of the top 10 is Ms. Kim K but that is not surprising do to her sham of a marriage going bust.
The more Twitter’s influence makes its way to those who follow, the more one should consider how to study and mimic these Twitter superstars. Having millions of Twitter followers doesn’t mean a hill a beans unless they act on what you say and react to what you tell them to do.
It only took one year for these influencers to triple their Twitter followers, lets see how fast it takes them to reach the 50 million follower mark. My guess is that we have not yet seen the ultimate power of how Twitter reaches the masses. Lets just hope those of us who follow will learn from the best and become better Twitter influencers ourselves.
