Richard Branson The Twitter Master (2020-03-26)

Hola! Today we did a major analysis of Richard Branson’s Twitter activity. Let’s jump right into it. First, the simple stuff: as of 2020-03-26, Richard Branson (@richardbranson) has 12689955 Twitter followers, is following 3898 people, has tweeted 25245 times, has liked 643 tweets, has uploaded 15.5K 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 519 replies, 84 retweets and 362 likes, their second latest tweet has 586 replies, 63 reweets and 499 likes, their third latest tweet has 138 replies, 42 retweets and 248 likes, their fourth latest tweet has 157 replies, 50 retweets and 580 likes and their fifth latest tweet has 25 replies, 20 retweets and 129 likes. That gives you an idea of how much activity they usually get.


Going through Richard Branson’s last couple pages of tweets (including retweets, BTW), the one we consider the most popular, having caused a very respectable 586 direct replies at the time of writing, is this:

That seems to have caused quite a ruckus, having also had 63 retweets and 499 likes.


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

That only had 10 direct replies, 41 retweets and 205 likes.


We did a lot of of digging into Richard Branson’s Twitter activity, looking through what people are saying in response to them, their likes/retweet numbers compared to the past, the amount of positive/negative responses and so on. 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 just OK.

We’ll leave it there for today. Thanks for coming, and drop a comment if you disagree or agree with me. Just don’t write anything too mean.
