2. Justin Bieber (114.3M Followers)
Twitter Handle- @justinbieber
Justin Bieber, a Canadian artist who joined Twitter in March 2009, has only tweeted once in 2022 about Canadian hockey (which happened to be around the time he tested positive for Covid-19). Still, he was highly 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.
3. Katy Perry (108.8M followers)
Twitter Handle– @katyperry
Let me tell you, if you’re not one of Katy Perry’s 97 million Twitter followers, you’re missing out big time. The pop star is the most followed person on Twitter for a reason: she’s entertaining.
Perry’s Twitter account is always bright and refreshing to check. What you see on Katy’s Twitter account is the real deal.
4. Rihanna (106.2M followers)

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, mainly on Fenty Beauty, Savage X Fenty, climate justice, and her pregnancy clothes.
5. Cristiano Ronaldo (99.4M followers)
Twitter handle – @Cristiano
Cristiano Ronaldo, a Portuguese footballer, has been known to delete tweets. 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 (90.3M followers)
Twitter handle – @taylorswift13
We’re down to the wire, and Taylor Swift is currently in sixth place. Being one of the world’s most famous pop stars brings not only fame and money but also a large number of Twitter followers. Taylor Swift hardly tweets, which adds to the impressiveness of the situation.
7. Elon Musk (86.2M followers)
Twitter handle – @elonmusk
Elon Musk is one of the most famous and accomplished businessmen of the modern era. He is the principal founder and CEO of SpaceX, and he is the co-founder, CEO, and product architect of Tesla Inc and CEO of Neuralink.

8. Lady Gaga (84.5M followers)
Twitter handle – @ladygaga
Due to her enormous success in music and acting, Lady Gaga is the seventh most followed person on Twitter. Her fans respond to her because she is the third most powerful female on Twitter, according to our data.

9. Narendra Modi (78.2M followers)
Twitter handle – @narendramodi
The first Indian person on our list is Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He’s been using Twitter since 2009 and recognized the significance of social media in politics early on. Since 2014, when he initially came to power as prime minister of India, his popularity has steadily increased.
Modi uses his account for precisely what one would expect from a politician and a state leader. He stands for office, speaks out on India-related topics, and tweets on foreign diplomacy.
10. Ellen DeGeneres (77.5M followers)
Twitter handle – @TheEllenShow
And finally, on the tenth number is the famous talk show host, Ellen DeGeneres. Her high watching numbers have also made her a Twitter sensation. She is the host of the internationally televised Ellen show. We might also assume that her infamous Oscars remark, which was for a while the most retweeted tweet of all time, contributed to her massive fan base.
Her account (@TheEllenShow) is technically for her show. Thus, practically all her tweets are photos and clips that help promote it. However, a few personal tweets do appear now and again.
Aren’t you surprised to see the number of followers each user has? While many celebrities on the list do not remain much active on Twitter, the number of followers they have keeps increasing each day.
