According to Allkpop, the winner and runners-up are determined by the average number of retweets each artist gets per tweet. The count was taken in May and at that time BTS had an average of 152,112 retweets per tweet. But as Allkpop reported, BTS has now surpassed Harry Styles with an average of 217,283 retweets per tweet and are now the #1 influencers on Twitter.

Besides nabbing the Guinness World Record, the past month has been a big one for BTS.
