We are currently second in the Premier League table behind Manchester City, only missing out on top spot by goal difference. We’re top of another table though, beating Manchester City, Manchester United, and every other Premier League team where Twitter followers are concerned (via the Mirror).
With a whopping 6,560,000 followers, we leave most teams in the dust. Manchester United and Chelsea are the only clubs even close to matching us, with the two clubs on 6,410,000 and 6,250,000 respectively.
Liverpool are some way behind having just reached 5,000,000, with the clubs below that severely dropping off. Current league leaders City are way down on 2,810,000, while our North London rivals Tottenham barely even register with 1,270,000.
It’s hardly surprising to see clubs like Bournemouth on Watford down around the 100,000 mark, but the mid table Premier League mainstays struggling for followers really shows the gulf between clubs.
Arsenal are one of the biggest clubs in the world, as is evidenced by our Twitter following. Twitter positively erupts in celebration when we get a big win, with the outrage when we’ve been cheated or mistreated spewed forth in equal volume.
