#1 Genie Bouchard 1,520,000 Every woman wants to be her, every man wants to be with her. She proves that you can still get lousy at what you do and have a ton of fun.
The fall at the end is SO dramatic lol pic.twitter.com/j3Mdw2IrNz— Genie Bouchard (@geniebouchard) November 8, 2017
#2 Roberto Luongo 794,000 St. Leonard-raised NHL goalie hasn't lived in this burg for quite some time but never pollutes his feed with boring content.

#4 Jay Baruchel 314,000 Gains points for having NDG in his name. Loses points for moving away from Montreal. Gains points for tweeting a lot about his cat and replying to notes and following Coolopolis.
I will endeavour to remind myself more often that my cat is just a cat, and not actually some sort of magical toy come to life!— Jay Baruchel (@BaruchelNDG) September 25, 2017
#5 Xavier Dolan 243,000 The actor/director looks like a sort of ..uh.. intense person but his feed sometimes sheds light on a lighter side.

#6 Sugar Sammy 299,000 Mostly just boring publicity stuff but occasionally a fun moment peeks through.

#7 Denis Coderre 310,000 Perhaps Montreal's all-time most famous tweet was when the then-mayor urged the Montreal Canadiens to send veteran forward David Desharnais to the minors.
Allo? Un billet simple pour Hamilton pour David Desharnais svp.... #HabsDC— DenisCoderre (@DenisCoderre) November 11, 2013
#8 Martha Wainwright 11,000 Mostly just boring concert promos and zero content about her hometown but her cheeky bio is an eye-catcher. "Mostly known for being a bloody motherfucking asshole, I'm also known for interpretive dance when it's not called for."
#9 Bianca Beauchamp model 145,000 Why resist?
