43=. Gary Barlow, Musician and TV personality
Take That singer and X Factor judge Barlow propelled himself onto the social network with a tweet during a live broadcast of the singing contest on 8 March. An hour later he had 100,000 followers. By the Monday he had 300,000 and has since accrued another million. Like many celebrities on the network, Barlow offers insights to his life, which can range from making cheese on toast for his nine-year-old to – on Sunday – announcing that his wife is pregnant.
