Richard Branson Is Blowing Up Twitter (2019-10-06)

Bonjour! Today we did a serious analysis of Richard Branson’s Twitter activity. Let’s dive in. First, the simple stuff: as of 2019-10-06, Richard Branson (@richardbranson) has 12665230 Twitter followers, is following 3895 people, has tweeted 24367 times, has liked 387 tweets, has uploaded 14.9K 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 10 replies, 10 retweets and 78 likes, their second latest tweet has 18 replies, 20 reweets and 173 likes, their third latest tweet has 15 replies, 16 retweets and 150 likes, their fourth latest tweet has 36 replies, 36 retweets and 299 likes and their fifth latest tweet has 16 replies, 32 retweets and 145 likes. But we won’t bore you going through all these numbers 🙂


Going through Richard Branson’s last couple pages of tweets (and retweets), the one we consider the most popular, having generated a huge 62 direct replies at the time of writing, is this:

That really seems to have caused quite a bit of interest, having also had 144 retweets and 698 likes.


What about Richard Branson’s least popular tweet in the recent past (again, including retweets)? We say it’s this one:

That only had 8 direct replies, 32 retweets and 121 likes.


We did a huge amount of of research into Richard Branson’s Twitter activity, looking through what people are saying in response to them, their likes/retweet numbers compared to what they were before, the amount of positive/negative responses and so on. We won’t go into that any more, so our verdict is this: we believe the online sentiment for Richard Branson on Twitter right now is excellent.

That’s it for now. Thanks for coming, and write a comment if you disagree with me. Just don’t write anything too mean.
