Bonjour! Today we did a very comprehensive analysis of Richard Branson’s Twitter activity. So let’s do it. First, the simple stuff: as of 2019-09-22, Richard Branson (@richardbranson) has 12661709 Twitter followers, is following 3888 people, has tweeted 24268 times, has liked 356 tweets, has uploaded 14.8K photos and videos and has been on Twitter since August 2007.

Going from top to bottom, their latest tweet, at the time of writing, has 53 replies, 41 retweets and 967 likes, their second latest tweet has 24 replies, 33 reweets and 282 likes, their third latest tweet has 3 replies, 16 retweets and 69 likes, their fourth latest tweet has 17 replies, 34 retweets and 170 likes and their fifth latest tweet has 12 replies, 37 retweets and 174 likes. That gives you an idea of how much activity they usually get.


Going through Richard Branson’s last couple-dozen tweets (including retweets, BTW), the one we consider the most popular, having caused a huge 67 direct replies at the time of writing, is this:

That seems to have caused quite a bit of discussion, having also had 2072 retweets and 2372 likes.


Now what about Richard Branson’s least popular tweet as of late (including any retweets)? We believe it’s this one:

That only had 3 direct replies, 16 retweets and 69 likes.


We did a huge amount of of research into Richard Branson’s Twitter activity, looking through what people keep saying in response to them, their likes/retweet numbers compared to what they were before, the amount of positive/negative responses and more. We won’t bore you with the details, so our conclusion is this: we say the online sentiment for Richard Branson on Twitter right now is totally fine.

That’s all for now. Thanks for coming, and drop a comment if you disagree with me. Don’t be afraid to speak your mind.
