The Twitter account used by Tesla CEO Elon Musk has more than 100 million followers now.
The Verge, an information technology (IT) media, reported on the 28th (local time) that Musk’s Twitter followers exceeded 100 million between the 26th and the 27th, citing social media (SNS) data analysis company SocialBlade.
Elon Musk, who has over 100 million followers, is currently the 6th ‘Power Trian’.
Former President Barack Obama with 132.1 million followers is number one, followed by pop star Justin Bieber (114.1 million), singer and actress Katy Perry (108 million), and pop singer Rihanna (100 million). 6.9 million), followed by soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo (101.3 million).
Elon Musk’s Twitter followers now have 100.1 million, and he is chasing Ronaldo’s account, according to economic media Benzinga.
Elon Musk created a Twitter account in June 2009, and in June 2010 he posted his first official post, asking him to ignore tweets from others impersonating him.
Since then, Elon Musk has attracted followers by posting his own Tesla and space exploration company SpaceX business status, sudden tweets related to cryptocurrencies such as Dogecoin, political views and daily life stories, etc.
Also, as Tesla and SpaceX disbanded their PR teams in 2020, Musk’s Twitter became the de facto single point of contact for the company’s status.
The Verge predicted that Musk would become the only social media leader in the industry that skillfully utilizes online public opinion when it completes the Twitter acquisition.
Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook’s parent company Meta platform has a Facebook page, but he’s mostly filling it with press release content.
In addition, the posts of the 1st to 5th power trees, such as former President Obama, are quite different from Musk’s tweets, which are often expressed as ‘cubic tablets’ because the content is refined and managed by a separate public relations team.
