Back in April, Beyonce was hailed as the first person to reach 30 million followers on Instagram. Although she’s racked up even more followers since, the singer is no longer the most popular celebrity on the social networking site: she’s been beaten by Kim Kardashian.
Kardashian has an impressive 44.1 million followers and surpassed Bey’s 44 million as of Monday, August 24. There’s only a 70,000 difference between the celebrities — Tech Insider reports Kardashian is at 44,005,604, with Beyonce at 43,935,648, which also makes Kardashian the most-followed Instagram account.
Tech Insider speculates the faster growth of Kardashian’s account is likely because she posts more photos, more often than Beyonce, and writes more personal messages with them.
The third most-followed Instagram account belongs to pop star Taylor Swift, with 43.7 million followers.
