To celebrate the film premiere of Marvel’s Ant-Man this week, we’re taking a look at some of the biggest armies in the pop world. From Gaga’s Monsters to Katy Perry’s #KatyCats - find out whose Twitter fanbase is the strongest!
First up it's those five lovely ladies from Fifth Harmony. The 'Work It' stars have built up a HUGE following in just a short amount of time, and with their star potential growing every day, expect this to keep on getting bigger! Picture: Splash
'Last Night' four-piece The Vamps have a strong core fan army that follow EVERYTHING these chaps do across Twitter - whether its revealing a new music video or posing in their undies (yeah, it happens). The #Vampettes love it ALL! Picture: Instagram
The #Mixers army is STRONG... just like their idols! Little Mix's Jesy Nelson, Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall share as much as they can on Twitter, including pics, exclusive remixes and, naturally... hilarious videos of the ladies messing around! Picture: Getty
5SOS have a HUGELY dedicated fan army on Twitter, who've been following these four boys since the start. They're expected to be back with new music later this year so the #5SOSFam will no doubt start sky-rocketing up this list very soon!
Jessie's #Heartbeats value the superstar's honesty more than anything - and they know their lady will ALWAYS tell them the truth about her opinions and what's going down. This is one Twitter fan base that REALLY looks out for each other. Picture: Getty
He's only been solo for a short time, but thanks to his time with the Jonas Brothers and his TV appearances, Nick's at number ten on our countdown of the STRONGEST Twitter fan armies going. Not too shabby, Mr. Jonas!
Queen Bey is not the strongest presence on Twitter - she's only tweeted a grand total of eight times (and not since 2013!). Perhaps this just PROVES how strong the #BeyHive are! Picture: beyonce.com
This is one chap whose Twitter army is only going one way - up, up, UP! Ed Sheeran's presence across the world has been growing at an insane rate over the past year thanks to his army 'X' and there's NO slowing this fella down. Picture: Instagram
Of COURSE those 1D boys would be in a countdown of the biggest Twitter armies going. Harry, Niall, Louis and Liam find themselves at number seven with almost 24 million fans following them. Picture: Instagram
Demi's always maintained a close and open relationship with her #Lovatics, so it's not surprising they're a huge Twitter force to be reckoned with! Picture: Instagram
The #Arianators are 30 million strong! This is a Twitter army that will ALWAYS defend their girl, which is why Ari finds herself at No. 5.
The #LittleMonsters are at number four, and it's likely Lady Gaga's super dedicated fans will always be up there on this countdown, they will do ANYTHING for Mother Monster after all!
She's been the MOST talked about artist over the past year thanks to '1989' and her ever-growing group of celebrity BFFs... and it looks like the #Swifties have been growing just as fast as Taylor's popularity! Picture: PA
He's the Twitter King... because Justin Bieber and his Beliebers find themselves as number two on our countdown of the top Twitter armies out there. This team is STRONG! Picture: Justin Bieber Instagram
She's the undisputed Queen Of Twitter... there's no messing with Katy Perry and her army of 72 million #KatyCats on the social networking site. #Owned.
