Kanye West was the second most tweeted about artist of 2020. From his brief presidential run to getting kicked off Twitter for a brief period of time, Yeezy certainly gave fans a lot to talk about in 2020.

Beyoncé came in as third most tweeted about artist in 2020 and Drake followed her in fourth place. A trio of K-pop groups, ATEEZ, NCT, and EXO came in fifth, sixth, and seventh respectively.
