Taylor Swift is the new Queen of Instagram

Tuesday September 8th 2015 will now be known in the world of stars as the day Kim Kardashian was dethroned by Taylor Swift on Instagram.

Taylor Swift, who has been updating her fans non-stop about her 1989 tour, reached 45.5 million followers yesterday afternoon. Kim Kardashian, who surpassed Beyonce’s 45 million, is trailing behind with 45.4 fans on the photo sharing app. It may be a close call, but it is clear who the winner is.

With her cheerful posts of cats and her popular photos with her celebrity best friends, who wouldn’t follow her?

Swift recently praised Troye Sivan’s new EP, Wild, on Instagram and tweeted to her 63.2 million Twitter followers:

“Go @troyesivan WILD IS STUNNING AND AWESOME! (YES CAPS LOCKS IS NECESSARY HERE.) #EPGOALS”

On Twitter, Swift takes 4th place behind Barack Obama who has 63.7 followers.

Now crowned the new Queen of Instagram, it is only a matter of time before Swift makes her way to the Top 3 of Twitter as well. One step at a time, Taylor Swift is making her way up the social media ladder.
