The section is based on the average number of retweets per tweet they receive in which the count was calculated back on May 8, 2017, according to Guinness. Since then, the number of retweets has gotten much higher to reach the highest rank and even by surpassing Harry Styles.

The septet is considered as the biggest influencers on all of Twitter. According to socialblade, BTS now averages 217,283 retweets per tweet.
