Arsenal have the most Twitter followers in the Premier League while Manchester United have the least.

The recently published Twitter league table ranks Premier League clubs in order of followers, with Arsenal on top, boasting 1,706,713 followers.

The Gunners have endured a long wait for a trophy, but Arsenal fans can celebrate this victory with the knowledge that their club has half a million followers more than any other Premier League club, and more than seven times their north London rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

Champions League winners Chelsea sit second on 1,276,549 but the Stamford Bridge club's fans are growing at a far faster rate than Arsenal's, suggesting the Blues could catch their London rivals before too long.

For Liverpool, the actual league table may have made depressing reading in recent seasons, but the Reds lie third in the Twitter stakes on 1,100,490 - the only other club to breach the one million followers mark.

Rounding out the top four is Manchester City on 441,500 fans, while Tottenham Hotspur sit fifth on 226,104.

But the most surprising statistic is to be found at the bottom of the table. Of the 20 Premier League clubs, Manchester United - who claim to have 660 million fans around the globe - finish bottom with 0 followers.

The Old Trafford side is the only club in the Premier League not to have an official account, although the Red Devils do have their own Facebook page with more than 27 million fans.

Likewise, Arsenal may sit top of the Twitter league table with 1.7 million fans, but that figure is dwarfed by their Facebook official team account, which currently boasts more than 11 million fans.

In total, official Premier League club Twitter accounts have just over 5million fans, but most accounts are growing at rate of 20% or faster.
