To some degree, we can’t stand not interacting with other people; otherwise we get a sense of isolation. Fortunately, thanks to the innovations made in technology, that hasn’t been much of a problem ever since.
Beginning with writing letters and sending them to the nearby post office, more communication mediums have since been offered to us. One such platform we now use almost every day would be social media. Besides talking with friends and family, but it also gives us a chance to meet other people from around the world. Well, with an audience scope as vast as that, it’s no surprise many celebrities have since found their way to several social media sites, one of which is Twitter. Now then, let’s take a look at ten of the blue bird’s most-followed celebrities, shall we?

On Twitter, the singer now has 85 million followers.
Another who started at a young age, one of Justin Timberlake’s earlier gigs was as a child actor for The All-New Mickey Mouse Club.
