Imran took TikTok by storm, gaining nearly 3 million followers on the social app within 24 hours of making an account. But this was clearly not the end of it as the former Prime Minister’s follower count continued to skyrocket with more social media posts.
Now Imran Khan has become the most followed political leader on TikTok with 6.7 million followers at the time of writing. He has also gained 40.7 million likes during this time with 12 uploads. He currently has over 450 million views on the app.
Imran Khan is now ahead of El Salvador’s President Nayib Bukele, who currently has 6.4 million followers. The President of Brazil, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, ranks 3rd on this list with a follower count of 4.4 million.
French President Emmanuel Macron has 3.9 million followers at the moment and then comes the President of Colombia, Gustavo Petro, with his 1.7 million followers.
America’s Bernie Sanders has 1.4 million followers and the Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni is currently at 1.2 million. Meanwhile, the US representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the only one on the list that falls short of the million mark with over 822,000 followers.
If this upward trend continues for Imran Khan’s TikTok following, we will soon see another surge in these numbers, especially if he continues to upload actively every single day, with each post gaining over 5 million views. In fact, his most followed upload is close to hitting 200 million views.
