Actor Robert Pattinson is best known for his roles in Twilight and The Lost Boys. He also famously dated singer Taylor Swift for a year before breaking up with her in 2016.

Since then, he has kept a low profile, appearing only in a few films and television shows. He rarely gives interviews and his personal life has largely remained private. But that appears to be changing, as he is now opening up about a range of topics on Reddit.

What Is Reddit?

Often described as the ‘front page of the internet’, Reddit is a social media site that was founded in 2005 and currently has more than 175 million monthly active users across its platforms.

The site is home to numerous communities (called subReddits) catering to every interest: from politics and current events to anime, computer hardware, and furry animals. The communities are moderated by the users themselves, which allows for a vibrant atmosphere and content that is often topical and engaging.

The site is hugely popular among Gen Z and millennials and several surveys have even placed it as the second-most favourite social media platform among those aged between 12 and 34. One study found that 41% of Reddit users had used the site to learn something new about politics or current events, while 18% used it to keep up with the Kardashians.

Why Are Celebrities On Reddit?

From Hollywood stars and singers to athletes and comedians, many famous people have taken the opportunity to join Reddit. Perhaps most notably, Billie Eilish, the 19-year-old daughter of musician Billy Eilish, is a member of r/Paris.

In October 2019, Eilish made history as she became the youngest person to reach 100,000 subscribers on Reddit. To celebrate, she held a contest where users could submit a photo with a handwritten message to be immortalised on a billboard in Paris.

Other celebrities who have opened up a Reddit account include Harry Styles, Charlie Barnett, and Mike Shinoda. Some members have even admitted to using the site to gather intel on their subjects – often sharing juicy tidbits about their lives and career journeys on their stories.

What Is Reddit’s Relationship With Taylor Swift?

Although he has kept a low profile in the public eye, Robert Pattinson is well-known for his friendships with many A-list celebrities. He has built a close-knit group of friends over the years and is known to regularly hang out with actor Woody Harrelson and musicians Jay-Z and Keanu Reeves.

However, he did date American singer Taylor Swift for a year before breaking up with her in 2016. It was rumoured that the split was caused by an argument over Swift’s cat videos, which she found more entertaining than romantic. Some reports have claimed that the two are still friendly and even spoke at a recent 2019 VMAs after-party.

Despite rumours of a reconciliation, Taylor Swift and Robert Pattinson have never been seen together since they ended their year-long engagement in February 2017. Since then, both have kept a relatively low profile, with Taylor frequently posting on her Instagram about her passion for fashion and travel, and appearing only in small cameo roles in a handful of films. She has also held several fashion campaigns, including walking the runway for Victoria Beckham and appearing in a Louis Vuitton ad with designer LV.

Whether or not her and Pattinson will ever get back together remains to be seen. But one thing is for sure: the internet will never forget about their beautiful romance.

What Does Reddit Offer Today?

Although it is the second most popular social media platform among 12 to 34-year-olds, Reddit is a site that offers numerous features and tools that appeal to a wide audience. Its popularity among that demographic makes it a useful resource for marketers looking to reach this audience.

The platform is home to over 175 million monthly active users and with its engaging communities and easy-to-use tools, it is easy to see why.

The Future Of Reddit

With celebrities, musicians, and influencers increasingly using the platform to engage with their audience, Reddit is set to continue growing in the coming years.

In 2021 alone, Reddit is on track to gain more than 500 million monthly active users and reach 1 billion by the end of that year.

The future of Reddit is looking incredibly positive and with celebrities continuing to flock to the platform, it is clear that it is here to stay.
