I like to think that I am pretty well established in the world of Twitter and have a ‘good’ amount of followers in relation to the amount of people that I follow. However I was mistaken – in reality after browsing on numerous celebrities Twitter accounts such as Miley Cyrus, I soon realised that I do not and will definitely never have as many Twitter followers as them!
It made me wonder who in the world has the most Twitter followers? I started to make a list of who I thought would be in the Top Ten most followed people on Twitter and surprisingly my list was more or less right, with only a couple of surprises! Take a look below at the list of the Top Ten most followed people on Twitter… are you surprised by any of the entries?
