Apart from Instagram which is technically the most-followed account with more than 94 million followers on Instagram, celebrities are the most popular on the picture-sharing app.
Kim Kardashian West is the new Instagram queen, beating Beyonce with just a little over 70,000 followers to win the popularity contest — and though they both post photos of themselves and their families, Kim K’s frequency of posts and her more personal captions seem to have pushed her to the top spot, according to Technology website.
Just two weeks ago, Kim was ranked in the number two spot with only 42million followers — which means that she has gained over 2 million followers in the past 14 days.
Kim’s younger half sisters Kylie and Kendall also make the top ten most followed Instagram accounts, while Khloe is ranked number 10 with 30.5 million followers.
