Who are the most popular musicians on Twitter?

Graphiq

Pop music fandom used to be measured in the amount of band posters and concert ticket stubs you had. Following musicians meant you saved every article in Rolling Stone Magazine about them and knew exactly when they were going on tour. Today, true fans follow their favorite singers and bands on Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat. These fans now know what these celebrities eat for breakfast and the names of their dogs.

With this in mind, PrettyFamous found the most popular musicians, judging by their Twitter follower counts. The list includes Twitter followers of individual musicians and bands as of April 12, 2016.
