Taylor Swift might just be the most popular person on the planet.

In addition to her sold-out tour stops, record-breaking 1989 album, which spawned three Billboard No. 1s (and counting), the singer’s now the queen of social media, too: On Tuesday, she usurped Kim Kardashian West‘s title as most-followed Instagram user. (As of Wednesday, Swift had 45.7 million followers, while Kardashian West lagged with a paltry 45.6.)

While the "Wildest Dreams" singer, 25, tends to posts pics of her cats, kitchen creations – and her star-studded squad, West’s social media formula differs. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star, 34, floods her feed with selfies and shots of her famous fam.
