Very interesting infograph. I think the most interesting part is that Katy Perry has more Twitter social media followers than our own President. Makes me want to follow her just to see what valuable content she must be creating to attract all of these follows.  

Once again, I love how easy to read and follow this infograph is so thank you for sharing.
