The people love their pop artists and, specifically, the people of Twitter really love their pop artists.

Twitter released their year-end data to reveal the most buzzed about artists in the world and in America, along with stats on the most mentioned songs on Twitter, the biggest fan armies and more.  BTS was the most buzzed-about celebrity in the world for 2017 with  @BTS_twt followed by fellow phenomenon K-pop boy band  Seventeen and "Havana" superstar  Camila Cabello

BTS was also the most tweeted-about music artist in the U.S., beating out  Nicki Minaj and Harry Styles.

K-pop also had a strong showing when it came to the most-mentioned songs with EXO's summer hit "Ko Ko Bop" earning the most mentions of the year—perhaps with help from the famous #kokobopchallenge—while the boy band was also the most popular celebrity to join Twitter in 2017.
