The following table lists the top 50 most followed accounts on Twitter, with each total rounded to the nearest million followers, as well as the profession or activity of each user. Account totals and monthly changes in ranking were last updated on 24 May 2021[update].
- On June 16, 2017, American singer Katy Perry became the first account to exceed 100 million followers.
- On July 12, 2018, Twitter purged locked accounts—those disabled due to suspicious activity—from follower-count tallies. Consequently, Twitter's own account took the fastest and greatest plunge out of all the top 50 accounts, from 63 million to 55 million followers, and in ranking, from 11th to 16th place.
