Kim Kardashian, who last week stole the crown of most followed on Instagram from Queen Bey, has already handed the title over to Taylor Swift.

Taylor Swift edged out Kim Kardashian this week with 45.6million followers to Kim's 45.4million, and 'Swifties' around the world are rejoicing.

Swift's Instagram is a mix of empowering posts, pictures of her best friend (#SquadGoals) and pictures of her two cats named after her favourite strong female TV characters.

To celebrate the milestone, Swiftie posted a photograph with one of her cats.

Taylor is known for her active social media presence, managing a Twitter, Instagram, YouTube and Tumblr account personally. She uses the latter to "stalk" her biggest fans, who she "shouts out" in her shows.

Recently, she posted an Instagram snap and tweet shouting out YouTuber Troy Sivan, causing his fans to go into meltdown.

She is best friends with Ed Sheeran and he credits her with helping him 'break America'.
