Liam Payne also beat President Donald Trump for title number 1 male tweeter

Taylor Swift has been called Twitter's most influential user of 2018, despite having tweeted only 13 times during the year.

Brand Watch, a social media analysis company, published its annual list of Twitter's biggest influences earlier today (November 28). "Look What You Made Me Do" pop star came out on the top of the women's list and received an "influencer score" of 98 out of 100.

Former rival Katy Perry landed second place with 96 points – in front of Kim Kardashian West, Demi Lovato and Ellen Degeneres.

In the men's list, Liam Payne (one way or another) was named the most influential tweeter, who beat President Donald Trump, Justin Bieber and Barack Obama.

The final results are said to be based on the true commitment created by the individual accounts – along with other Twitter calculations.

With such as Swift – as last tweeted in June – and Bieber rarely posts on social media, these global stars can "create a large amount of commitment", according to Brand Watch data journalist Gemma Joyce.

Last month, Swift ended political silence to back Democrats in the US mid-term election – although she chose Instagram over Twitter to encourage fans to vote.
