Thanks to Echelon Insights, an Alexandria, Virginia based research and analytics data firm, we know the top 10 media personalities with the highest number of celebrity followers: ranked.
Topping the list is MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow.
Perhaps the saddest entry on the list is #7: NYT‘s late media reporter David Carr.
CNN’s Jake Tapper, who is known to chat with celebrities or about them on Twitter, is #8.
Ronan Farrow may have lost his 1 p.m. MSNBC show, but he is staying with the network to do celebrity and “investigative” journalism. He’s #2 on the list.
Rolling Stone‘s Matt Taibbi might have had some turbulence in his career in the past year, but now safely back at Rolling Stone from First Look Media’s dead in the water “Racket,” he still makes the list.
