Montreal Twitter Power Rankings - Who are Montreal's top tweeters?

#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.

#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.

#3 Sami Zayn 937,000 Wrestler We don't know too much about this guy but he's definitely happening.

#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.

#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.

#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?

10 Jojo Savard 179 The queen of astrology hasn't got many followers in spite of her efforts. Click her and give her a hand's up.

It's the craziest, funniest, scariest and most insightful book ever written about Montreal. Absolute must-reading! Kristian Gravenor's Montreal: 375 Tales of Eating, Drinking, Living and Loving, order your paper copy here now.
