With three weeks to go in the year, it’s time to start looking back on the general zeitgeist of 2016. Twitter offers this year-end data for Canada regarding who and what was popular since January. After you sort through the #thishappened blog post, take a look at the following.
Justin Bieber (@justinbieber) joined Katy Perry in having more than 90 million followers.
Drake (@drake) has 30 milllion.
These are the musicians with the most Twitter mentions:
- Justin Bieber (@justinbieber)
- Shawn Mendes (@ShawnMendes)
- Drake (@Drake)
- Sebastian Olzanski (@sebtsb)
- The Weeknd (@theweeknd)
- Alessia Cara (@AlessiaCara)
- Deadmau5 (@deadmau5)
- Celine Dion (@CelineDion)
- Carly Rae Jepsen (@CarlyRaeJepsen)
- Simple Plan (@SimplePlan)
And the most-retweeted music tweet was also the second-most retweeted tweet of the year. (Wow. What an awkward sentence.)
