Justin Bieber may not be the most followed celebrity on twitter, but according to Vice.com, he’s currently the only celeb that shows “real commitment” and fans engagement on Twitter with over 26,000 tweets. Checkout the article below:
Interesting Facts about Twitter.
Considering the way the most popular musician accounts use Twitter, it seems a disavowal of its very spirit. Many of them can barely even be considered users of Twitter in any meaningful sense. They’re merely glitzy squatters who’ve propped up a sign on a digital storefront and come around every now and again to gawk at the line waiting outside.
Consider Adele, the 21st most popular account, with nearly 20 million followers. She’s tweeted a grand total of 206 times. 29th place Eminem: 328 times; 34th Lil Wayne: 945; 40th Drake: 1,531. 57th place Christina Aguilera: 596. Beyoncé has deigned to tweet to her 13.3 million followers 8 times, while Kanye West has dropped 66 pearls of wisdom on his 10.3 million. On the other end of the spectrum, 30th place Nicki Minaj has cleared 26,000.
In the top ten, the number of tweets grows somewhat, but with only Justin Bieber showing any real commitment to actually using Twitter with his 26,400 tweets. By comparison, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, Britney Spears, and Justin Timberlake all fall between 2-5,000 tweets. All of their accounts were started in either 2008 or 2009. That’s a rough estimate of between 1-2 tweets per day, which may sound like a lot to people who aren’t regular users, but it certainly doesn’t represent the type of daily engagement Twitter would like to see among its user base. It seems strange then to tout the most prominent users of a product when they can barely even be bothered to use it themselves. It would be like a cable provider promoting its most popular channels that broadcast ten seconds of programming a day.
