Most-Followed Latinos on Twitter Inspire Their Followers

Thanks to social media, we are more connected than ever. It’s amazing how social media brings us closer to our idols, who for many of us are role models.

Twitter has 288 million active users every month. Millions of Twitter users connect daily to follow public figures, friends, news outlets, etc. I have listed below some of the Latinos from the list of the 100 most-followed people on Twitter.

  • Jennifer Lopez – @JLo has 31.7 million followers
  • Selena Gomez – @selenagomez has 28.4 million followers
  • Shakira – @Shakira has 30.4 million followers
  • Pitbull – @Pitbull has 19.9 million followers
  • Alejandro Sanz – @AlejandroSanz has 12.4 million followers
  • Ricky Martin – @ricky_martin has 12 million followers

These celebrities don’t need to interview with a media outlet to tell their audiences about their projects or inspire their followers.

“If you can motivate, inspire, and show others the positive and the negative around them and show them a solution, I think that makes you not only a true gentleman, but a great human being,” Pitbull tells his audience in a video that he posted on his Twitter account about his series “Gentlemen’s Code”.

Pitbull isn’t the only one who uses his Twitter account to inspire followers. Ricky Martin also tweets short phrases to encourage his followers.

“The moment you start to wonder if you deserve better, you do,” and “Here’s the truth about big life changes: some people won’t come with you. And that’s okay,” are some of Ricky’s tweets.

Others use Twitter to promote community outreach or to push people to take part in it. Shakira is one of these people. With the near-arrival of their second child, Piqué and Shakira, in partnership with UNICEF, decided to celebrate a “worldwide baby shower” so that pregnant women from all around the world could receive donations.

“With the explosion of social media, celebrities aren’t the only ones with platforms to reach a massive audience, and we hope this movement becomes a trend after our baby shower ends. So we want to invite all of you to organize your own baby showers with UNICEF as well,” the singer expressed in a press release to UNICEF.

It is important that celebrities know that fame comes with social responsibility, and these public figures, followed by millions of people, are doing a great job. We hope that more people accept this responsibility and continue to inspire others.
