  • Top 10 Accounts following the most users on Twitter:

Twitter is a network to meet new and like-minded people apart from following your friends & colleagues. You might end up following people you might not have seen in your real life but would like to hear and share more about them. Most of the users have a #followback rule to follow people who have followed them to reciprocate the gesture and give an opening to their potential conversation.

However, there users follow the most Twitter accounts which raise the questions ‘Are they really achieving anything following millions of accounts? Or is it just another Twitter bot?’
