Does Twitter Love or Hate Richard Branson? ( 2019-09-27)

What’s up. Today we did a serious analysis of Richard Branson’s Twitter activity. Let’s jump right into it. First, the simple stuff: as of 2019-09-27, Richard Branson (@richardbranson) has 12663943 Twitter followers, is following 3892 people, has tweeted 24302 times, has liked 364 tweets, has uploaded 14.8K photos and videos and has been on Twitter since August 2007.

Going from the top of the page to the bottom, their latest tweet, at the time of writing, has 47 replies, 20 retweets and 131 likes, their second latest tweet has 18 replies, 23 reweets and 148 likes, their third latest tweet has 12 replies, 44 retweets and 301 likes, their fourth latest tweet has 16 replies, 36 retweets and 240 likes and their fifth latest tweet has 41 replies, 115 retweets and 558 likes. But we won’t bore you going through all these numbers 🙂


Going through Richard Branson’s last couple-dozen tweets (including retweets, BTW), the one we consider the most popular, having generated a huge 441 direct replies at the time of writing, is this:

That looks to have caused quite a ruckus, having also had 177 retweets and 765 likes.


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

That only had 2 direct replies, 19 retweets and 97 likes.


We did a huge amount of of digging into Richard Branson’s Twitter activity, looking through what people keep saying in response to them, their likes/retweet numbers compared to the past, the amount of positive/negative responses and more. We won’t drone on and on about the numbers, so our conclusion is this: we say the online sentiment for Richard Branson on Twitter right now is all good.

We’ll leave it there for today. Thanks for visiting, and write a comment if you disagree with me. Just make sure to keep it civil.
