Twitter is an indispensable social networking platform for K-Pop fans. Here, we can quickly see the news, share videos and photos, and get together with hashtags to cheer for our favorite artists during special events. There are even a lot of awards related to an artist’s popularity on Twitter. That’s why for a K-Pop rookie, having a strong fandom on Twitter is so important.

In 2020, we see many rookie groups debuted. All of them quickly created an official Twitter account from the beginning to both update news, photos, and get data to reflect their popularity through charts (for example, Billboard Social 50). Let’s take a look at 10 most followed K-Pop rookie groups in 2020 at the moment.

  • Data are taken as of September 24, 2020.

It can be seen that among the rookie groups mentioned above, ENHYPEN is the youngest group, being created only recently after the show ‘I-LAND’ ended. Before that, TREASURE was the rookie ruling Twitter as they constantly recorded a massive number of followers. However, in less than a week since the launch of their official account, ENHYPEN has shown remarkable strength and took the throne.

Congratulations to all the 2020 rookies who were honored in this rankings. Among them, who are the rookies you were expecting and followed on Twitter? Please share with us.
