1. Barack Obama

131.5 million people follow you on Twitter.

16,400 tweets

While the former US president joined Twitter in March 2007, he did not begin tweeting until 2011, and in the interim, he used other official presidential accounts. He’s been tweeting a lot lately, with 16 tweets in April and March, 23 in February, and 29 in January. Obama also uses Instagram on a regular basis, with a small variance in content, but he prefers Twitter.

2. Justin Bieber

114.3 million people follow you on Twitter.

31,400 tweets

Justin Bieber, a Canadian artist who joined Twitter in March 2009, has only posted once in 2022, about Canadian hockey (which happened to be around the time he tested positive for Covid-19), but he was extremely active between October and December last year, then silent between August and October.

While he appears to take a break from Twitter now and then, he is very active on Instagram, posting several times per day (31 in April so far).

3. Katy Perry

108.8 million people follow you on Twitter.

11,600 tweets

Katy Perry has been active on Twitter since February 2009, with ten posts thus far in April regarding her engagement in American Idol (she’s a judge), Katy Perry Collections, and the odd one in support of Ukraine.

In March, she tweeted nearly 40 times, compared to 11 in February and 28 in January. On Instagram, the content is largely the same.

4. Rihanna

106 million people follow you on Twitter.

10,600 tweets

Rihanna joined Twitter in October 2009, but she hasn’t posted anything in the last ten days. She’d sent out 18 tweets so far this year, and she appears to be significantly more active on Instagram, where she’s posted roughly 11 times on her main page so far in April. She only tweeted three times in March, nine times in February, and nine times in January, largely on Fenty Beauty, Savage X Fenty, climate justice, and her pregnancy clothes.

5. Cristiano Ronaldo

98.8 million people follow you on Twitter.

3,778 tweets

Cristiano Ronaldo, a Portuguese footballer, has been known to delete tweets in the past, therefore his tweet count may not accurately reflect how active he is on Twitter.

He doesn’t tweet much, but at least twice a month, with two in April, eight in March, six in February, and nine in January, when he updated us on his trip to Dubai and Expo 2020.

He is, however, significantly more active on Instagram, posting virtually every day. His posts are primarily on his family, football, and fitness.

6. Taylor Swift

90.3 million people follow you on Twitter.

716 tweets

Taylor Swift, who joined Twitter in December 2008, notoriously deleted all of her social media tweets a few years ago, thus her first tweet is from August 2017, when she teased her album Reputation.

Despite her love-hate relationship with social media, she remains active, albeit infrequently. She’s only tweeted twice this year, both in response to Blur’s Damon Albarn’s claim that she doesn’t write her own music, though she did post a lot in November. Swift had another sabbatical between August and October but was quite active in 2019 and 2020, so it’s safe to conclude she’s not a reliable supplier of social media content.

Her Instagram usage is similar to mine, except she posts different things. On the mainstream this year, she mentioned the film adaptation of Where the Crawdads Sing and her cat’s birthday, for example.

7. Lady Gaga

84.5 million people follow you on Twitter.

9,742 tweets

Lady Gaga joined Twitter in March 2008 and continues to use it, but don’t expect her to update it on a regular basis. So far in April, she’s blogged twice, both regarding the Grammys, followed by ten updates in March, four in February, and eleven in January.

Gaga’s posts have primarily been about awards season, House of Gucci, and magazine covers she’s graced. She frequently retweets Tony Bennett, a collaborator. She’s been a little more active on Instagram, posting largely red carpet ensembles.

8. Elon Musk

81.1 million people follow you on Twitter.

17,300 tweets

Musk is well-known for being one of the most active Twitter users. He’s only tweeted 13 times in the last 24 hours (at the time of writing), and that doesn’t include retweets. It’s evident that this is his preferred platform.

Musk made his Instagram account private in March, stating that to be allowed as a follower on his main account, you must first follow @elonmusksnft.

9. Narendra Modi

77.7 million people follow you on Twitter.

32,400 tweets

As are other politicians, India’s Prime Minister is a prolific poster. He’s updated six times in the last 24 hours (at the time of writing), and you can expect multiple updates every day from him. He’s significantly less active on Instagram, with only one post so far in April, five in March, and seven in February.

10. Ellen DeGeneres

77.5 million people follow you on Twitter.

23,700 tweets

@TheEllenShow, the comedian’s Twitter account, is quite active, with several postings each day and 27 so far in April. It largely consists of clips from The Ellen DeGeneres Show, but it also includes subjects close to DeGeneres’ heart, such as LGBTQ+ rights and support for Ukraine in recent weeks.

With the star’s daytime talk show scheduled to conclude on Thursday, May 26, we may expect new content from her in the future (and perhaps a change in the handle). She might cease uploading as much now that she doesn’t have any clips to offer.
