A few weeks ago I used the Wonder Why Wednesday segment to ask the question: “What Do You Wonder?” I put out a call to readers to hear what they have been dying to know.
One question a friendly young chap named Chris asked was: Who has the most Instagram followers & who has the most Twitter followers?
Great question. And I will take it one step further by giving you the top 10 list for each social media platform.
