In celebration of Twitter's 10-year anniversary, Forbes magazine made a list of the top artists on Twitter. The Bangtan Boys made it onto two different lists, making them the only K-pop group among top pop artists!

BTS’s official Twitter account, which is shared by all the members of the group, has about 2 million followers. While the boys do like to interact with the fans and update quite frequently, it’s no secret BTS has become increasingly popular in the past year, not only in Korea but also among international K-pop fans.

Forbes reports that Kanye West is the second-most re-tweeted artist in the past month, beat out by BTS! Check out the list below!
