BTS Dominates Twitter Worldwide As 2018’s Most Tweeted About Celebrity

True to their social media power, the end-of-year Twitter data reveals the Korean sensation to have stormed the social media platform throughout 2018.

On December 5, Twitter released their end of year data, revealing BTS was 2018’s the most tweeted about user-account on a global scale.

With a following of 17.2 million Twitter users, the group yet again claims the title for the second year in a row by having the most Twitter engagements across the globe in likes, retweets, and replies.

Accordingly, BTS also topped this year’s most-tweeted-about rankings for celebrities and musicians worldwide. The group’s member, Jimin, however, had his own ranking for 2018’s ‘Most Tweeted About Celebrities’, beating out rapper Nicki Minaj for ninth on the list.

Although, the group’s rapper and dancer, j-hope, also gets his moment to shine with his viral video for Drake’s #InMyFeelingsChallenge becoming this year’s most liked tweet. Since being posted on July 23, the tweet has collected over 1.74 million likes and 14.3 million views.

The tweet was also the Asia Pacific’s Golden Tweet, being this year’s most retweeted tweet in that region. Though, the group’s social media power also shows domestically with Jungkook’s short cover of Park Won’s “All of My Life” being crowned South Korea’s 2018 Golden Tweet. This marks the fourth consecutive year that the group has claimed the title.

Likewise, BTS were South Korea’ most-tweeted about user account in 2018. Furthermore, as this year’s most tweeted about celebrity, the group’s presence also extends to other countries and regions with BTS making an appearance on Twitter data for places including the U.S., Canada, Indonesia, and the Philippines.
