With 2014 coming to an end, social media networks are taking a look back at the biggest moments in pop culture over the past year, including Spotify and YouTube. (Did you watch the YouTube Rewind yet?)
And today, Twitter’s giving us the lowdown on the highest numbers.
According to new data released by the social network, it’s a great, big Belieber world: Justin Bieber was the most tweeted-about artist of 2014, followed by One Direction‘s Niall, Harry and Liam. (Sorry, Zayn!)
And it’s probably a wise move on the NFL’s part to have Prism princess Katy Perry as their Super Bowl half time show act, because she had the highest growth in followers (13 million!) this year, followed closely by the Biebs and Miss Taylor Swift.
To no one’s surprise, when it comes to stans, Bieber’s wildly loyal fanbase (the Beliebers) also took the crown as the most talked about fan base on Twitter, followed by 1D’s Directioners and, somewhat more surprisingly, Kesha‘s Animals.
Were you one of the ones tweeting or following Katy, 1D and Justin this year? Check out the full lists below via Variety, and sound off about the stats in the comments below. More »
