Taylor Swift has one more achievement to add to the long list of accolades that she's managed to gather this year. The global sensation has had a big year in terms of her music as well as a decade-ender, and now she's been named the Most Influential Person on Twitter, reported E! News.

Compiled by Brandwatch, the list was announced on Wednesday and features a number of other big names, including US President Donald Trump, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Katy Perry and Elon Musk.


Rounding off  the top 10 are Cristiano Ronaldo, Lady Gaga, Ellen DeGeneres, Ariana Grande and Kim Kardashian.

The consumer intelligence company revealed what their list is based on. "This is our measure of how influential an account is over time, based on the level of genuine engagement they are creating. While lots of followers, retweets and replies will help, the more influential the people they engage with, the better the score."
