Taylor Swift Beats Kim Kardashian at Instagram-Followers Game

Taylor Swift and Kim Kardashian Split - H 2015

Maybe it has something to do with her squad?

Once again, there’s a new queen in town, and this time it’s not Beyonce or Kim Kardashian. Taylor Swift has bested her fellow social media stars in the Instagram department, clocking in post-Labor Day with 45.5 million followers, making her the most followed person on the app.

It was just recently that Kardashian managed to steal the title from Queen Bey herself, but she only held it for a short time. Her latest efforts have been strong: posing with Kanye West at a pal’s wedding and a snap of sipping tea with Serena Williams, but they can’t stand up to Swift’s dominance. It seems it might be time for the selfie-obsessed star to get herself a squad.

For her part, it seems Swift’s secret may be a blend of adorable cat photos (her most recent had 1.9 million likes, whereas Kardashian’s post with Williams was in the 675K range), sweater selfies, shots of her super-famous squad and, ironically, flowers sent to her by West himself — that picture got 2.4 million likes. It very well may have been Kardashian’s own hubby who tipped the balance. So, does this mean war?
