Forbes has ranked the top 20 celebrity Instagrammers of 2018. One of the top athletes on the list is 32-year-old English actor Robert Pattinson. The ‘Twilight’ star has more than 4.8 million followers on his Instagram account. If you’re unfamiliar, the list was compiled by identifying the 20 highest-scoring Instagrammers on TikTok — a trendy video app that’s currently dominated by short-form content.
Pattinson’s Instagrammable moments range from simply showing off his baby daughter, Mia, to promoting his fashion line or acting gigs. Overall, it seems like an authentic reflection of the 30-year-old’s life. He hasn’t always had a camera attached to his phone. For a while, he didn’t even have an Instagram account. But that all changed in 2017 when he joined the platform as a way of promoting his fashion line. Since then, it’s been an incredible journey, earning him a spot on this year’s Forbes list.
Best Instagrammers Of 2018
Pattinson’s Instagram is a treasure trove of gorgeous, creative content. It’s clear that he spends a lot of time editing his photos before posting them. But despite this effort, it’s still hard to capture the perfect shot. It requires a lot of patience and some great accessories. Here are the top Instagrammers of 2018, as ranked by Forbes.
1. Taylor Swift
Taylor Swift is one of the most popular recording artists in the world. She’s released 13 albums and has had 19 songs enter the Billboard Top 100.

Despite all of this, she still manages to keep up with her social media responsibilities. In March 2018, she surpassed 500 million followers on TikTok. While this might not seem like a lot compared to others on this list, it’s still a crazy milestone for a 33-year-old.
