The 20 Most Popular Brands on #Twitter

@YouTube maintains its position as the most popular brand on Twitter, with its more than 46 million followers placing it well ahead of all other brands, including the official @Twitter profile.

Indeed, @Twitter isn’t even second on its own network – that space has long been reserved for @Instagram, although both remain many millions behind @YouTube. There’s also quite a divide between Twitter’s top three and fourth-placed @cnnbrk.

Social media profiles continue to dominate Twitter, accounting for five of the first six spots. @Facebook continues to close in on @twitter_es, Twitter’s Spanish-tweeting profile, and should pass it before the end of the year.

This month, both @BBCBreaking and @NBA have leapfrogged @UberSoc, which appears to be in a Twitpic-like descent down the Twitter rankings. Whether, like TwitPic, that decline is indicative of a cloudy future for UberSocial remains to be seen.
