Popstars: Who Is Following Whom On Twitter – And Who Is @ExtremeCatNip – Infographic

Justin Bieber is the pop artist who follows the most of his music contemporaries on Twitter, from Katy Perry and Taylor Swift to Kayne West, while Lady Gaga is a lot more selective with whom she follows on the site.

Ticketing site ClickItTicket.com has compiled data on which celebrities are following whom on Twitter and how they are using the site. The company lists the following six pop stars as the most popular on the platform: Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Rihanna, Britney Spears and Taylor Swift.

Lady Gaga doesn’t follow any of the top pop stars using Twitter, but everyone else follows at least two of them. Bieber not only follows the most — all five, and he’s the only one that follows his own record label — he also tweets more than the others. Bieber sends about 14 tweets each day to his fan base.

But Bieber hasn’t been on the site the longest. Lady Gaga has been active on the site longer than other artists, for a total of 1,630 days or about 4.5 years.

Some musicians are more leaders than followers on Twitter. Eminem, for example, has more than 12 million followers and isn’t following anyone. Meanwhile, West has nearly 9 million followers and is only following one person: Kim Kardashian, his girlfriend.

The infographic also points out some interesting information about whom these musicians follow. Lady Gaga may not follow Bieber and Spears, but all three follow one mysterious account: @ExtremeCatNip, which only has 65 followers.

For a deeper look at who is following whom on Twitter, check out the infographic.

How often does the social media monster swallow you whole?

More than you may think, according to Red e App, which lets consumers get notifications from businesses without having to provide their personal information.
