Video Exclusive: CNN.com Has 6 Million Followers on Twitter -- Beating #1 Ashton Kutcher by Over 2 Millon

Posted: 10/24/2009 7:40 am


CNN.com has nearly 6 million followers on Twitter, according to KC Estenson, Sr. VP and Gneral Manager of CNN.com. told Beet.TV in this video interview.    


On Twittercounter, CNN.com's Breaking News Twitter alone comes in at number 4 out of the top 100 with 2.8 million followers, compared with the The New York Times which has 2 million and is on the list at number 19.

Six million is a big number, making CNN by far the biggest on Twitter, according to Tweetcounter which ranks Ashton Kutcher at number 1 with 3.8 million followers.

I spoke with KC on Thursday evening after the big press event unveiling the new, heavily video centric cnn.com site which launches on Monday.  We spoke about the redesign, live video and social media on the site.
