K-pop proves popular on Twitter

Twitter said on Friday that 5.3 billion tweets were made about K-pop last year.

“Twitter continues to show that it’s the best place to find out what’s happening with K-pop and to talk with K-pop fans around the world,” the U.S.-based microblogging website said.

Some of the countries that tweeted the most about K-pop in 2018 include the United States and other major Asian countries.

Twitter said it has also collaborated with 34 K-pop bands and over 200 artists to create content available exclusively for the platform, such as with BTS (@BTS_twt), EXO (@weareoneEXO) and GOT7 (@GOT7Official).

“Twitter has strengthened its position as the top conversation platform for the global K-pop community,” it said.

The company also said 56 million tweets were made about the 2018 Mnet Asian Music Awards in just three days.
