The report also says that the Indian Prime Minister, who joined Twitter in January 2012 has yet to make a noticeable mark.

According to the report, Obama, whose handle is @BarackObama, has 33.5 million followers getting him the crown for having most followers in the world. Obama was the first world leader to join Twitter, and he’s the most followed, the most listed and he also follows a record 661,084 other Twitter users, which includes only two other world leaders.

Pope is at second spot with 7.2 million followers on his nine different twitter accounts with handle @Pontifex.
