Ranking every Premier League club by their amount of Twitter followers with clear No. 1…
Manchester United are the Premier League club with the most Twitter followers in the summer of 2023, miles clear of their closest rivals.
With Twitter now firmly embedded in everyday life, fans often follow their favourite clubs on social media for official news, content and frequent nostalgic video clips.
And United have the biggest number of followers in England’s top flight, with their global fanbase increasing the club’s total to a whopping 36.5 million.
Elsewhere, Chelsea edge out Liverpool and Arsenal for second place as all three clubs have totals exceeding 20 million users following their every move.
Treble-winners Manchester City have less than half of United’s total, but their continued success under Pep Guardiola and a lucrative pre-season tour of Asia should ensure steady growth.
Further down, Everton and West Ham fare well – the Hammers are level with Newcastle United, although that may not remain the case for much longer, while Aston Villa, Crystal Palace and Wolves all attract over a million Twitter users to their official club page.
Luton Town are unsurprisingly bottom, although memes about Kenilworth Road are everywhere on Twitter, while Brentford and Sheffield United complete this metaphorical relegation zone.
Despite a substantial fan base in England, Nottingham Forest don’t have the same reach as either Bournemouth or Burnley. There’s probably a lesson there about how Premier League football increases your name recognition abroad.
