Time names most in­flu­en­tial peo­ple on­line

The Standard Journal - - ENTERTAINMENT -

NEW YORK — Kylie Jen­ner, Kanye West, Ri­hanna, Busy Philipps and Matt Drudge have landed on Time magazine’s roundup of the most in­flu­en­tial peo­ple on the in­ter­net. So did some­one with 53 mil­lion Twit­ter fol­low­ers — Pres­i­dent Don­ald J. Trump.

The magazine sized up con­tenders for its an­nual list by look­ing at their global im­pact on so­cial me­dia and their over­all abil­ity to drive news.

Oth­ers who made the 25-en­try list in­clude Korean pop act BTS, Lo­gan and Jake Paul and so­cial ac­tivists Shaun King, Eman alNaf­jan and the stu­dents of Park­land, Florida, push­ing for gun re­form.

When it comes to Pres­i­dent Trump, Time says his “un­ortho­dox stream of con­scious­ness” gen­er­ates head­lines and gal­va­nizes his base.

The magazine cred­its the pres­i­dent with turn­ing his Twit­ter ac­count into “the ul­ti­mate pres­i­den­tial bully pul­pit.”
