Methodology Used

The ICMP took various ‘most successful’ and ‘most followed’ lists to build their own list of celebrities through various genres including acting, sport, music, and tv personalities. They then filtered this by the number of followers to get to a top 100 most followed list.

They then ran their Instagram and Twitter handles through IG Audit and Sparktoro’s fake Twitter follower’s tool to measure the percentage of their following that was actually real.
