20 Twitter Accounts With The Most Followers

This post focuses on the 20 Twitter accounts with the most followers worldwide. Nowadays, social networks are great indicators of the power, acceptance and fame of a personality. Those with a large following can easily reach tens of millions of people with just a few characters.

In recent months we have seen how the former president of the United States, Barack Obama, became the account with the most followers on Twitter, taking the position from singer Katy Perry.

Twitter was born in July 2006 and currently has more than 320 million monthly active users.

At the beginning of 2008, the Twitter work team consisted of just 18 people. The following year, Twitter had already multiplied its staff and continued to grow. In 2015, Twitter already had more than 3,600 employees between its headquarters in San Francisco (California) and its subsidiaries in San Antonio (Texas) and Boston (Massachusetts). Currently, Twitter has more than 4,600 employees worldwide.

In March 2015, Twitter launched Curator, an application to broadcast video in real-time. Just one year later, on the first anniversary of that launch, there had been more than 200 million live broadcasts.
