What do Chance the Rapper, Katy Perry, Rihanna, J.K. Rowling, Donald Trump, and Vladimir Putin have in common? Not much, probably, but they’ve all been featured in TIME magazine’s list of the 25 most influential people on the internet.
TIME’s unranked list took into account each celebrity’s global impact on social media and their overall ability to drive news. That meant the “covefefe” posting Trump and Katy Perry – the first celebrity to surpass the 100 million followers landmark on Twitter – were both shoe-ins to make the cut. Other notable names include Matt Furie, creator of the infamous Pepe the Frog, and Kim Kardashian. This time around, there was no sign of Kanye West, although that should come as no surprise given the star’s recent decision to erase his social media presence.
“[Rihanna] approaches social media with the same aplomb and fearlessness that has become her trademark across music, fashion and culture,” says the TIME article. Chance, meanwhile, is praised for his “mastery of the internet.”
