Social media platforms have matured in recent years and have now become a storehouse of information. In particular, they seem to share a symbiotic relationship with cryptocurrencies and specifically meme coins like Shiba Inu (SHIB).
In fact, the research website LunarCrush has dedicated an entire section to social media metrics. These include social volumes, social dominance, social relevance, etc. But who creates these numbers? Although independent tweets can go viral, some accounts are responsible for creating a large portion of social media traffic.
Tweets from these users can create mass hysteria, which in some cases translates into price increases. So, without further ado, let’s dive into the top Shiba Inu influencers. Keep in mind that followers and tweets per day are heavily weighted in rankings.
Starting the list on a strong note is the Twitter handle @ShibInfo. The mango has over 350,000 followers who stay entertained with the latest Shiba Inu collaborations, donations and price updates. Mango is particularly known for sharing new SHIB-inspired projects that are about to go public.
@ShibaInuHodler is ranked #4 with over 315,000 loyal followers. The account is most popular for contests and giveaways, though it also covers general Shiba Inu news. Price updates are also common, especially when large candlesticks form on the charts.
In the past hour, there have been a total of 4,635,389 $SHIB tokens burned and 4 transactions. #shibarmy [Visit pages to burn transaction info on the Shibburn website as they get tweeted for more burn. 🔥]

Third place on the list goes to @Shibburn. As the name suggests, the handle, followed by just over 200,000 users, is the most popular for posting details about Shiba Inu burnings. A website of the same name is also maintained, where users can learn specific details about total Shiba Inu burned to date, circulating supply, and burn rate. Sometimes the Twitter handle also covers large transactions and transfers.
#DoggyDao Facts: In order to cast a vote to list projects, users must stake their $BONE (to get $tBONE) also distribute their amount of choice, to weigh in and provide to that very pair. The more they weigh in / the more votes a project achieves, the more AP it will have.
– MILKSHAKE (@shibainuart) February 16, 2022
With a following of almost 270,000 users, @shibainuart, or ‘Milkshake’, comes in second on the list. The handler averages over 25 Shiba Inu-specific tweets per day over the past few months, covering a wide range of topics like general updates, price predictions, new listings, whale deals, rumors and speculation, you name it. The account caters to a wide range of Shiba Inu fans, from novices to veteran traders.
Taking the number one spot on the list is @ShibInform. The account is followed by nearly 400,000 users, making it the largest SHIB community to follow on the list. In addition to regularly posting about the Shiba Inu hype train, the account hosts SHIB memes, updates, and giveaways. For your daily dose of Shiba Inu news, ShibInform is a must.
Honorable Mentions: Duncan Gray and Elon Musk
Record producer, NFT enthusiast, and Shiba Inu advocate is a well-known figure in the community. Followers stay engaged with Shiba Inu whale buying news, price charts and also trade information in some cases.
Finally, the list would be incomplete without the alleged father of the meme coin, Elon Musk. Though the Tesla CEO has only mentioned Shiba Inu a handful of times in his tweets, he goes on a buying spree at even the slightest mention of the popular meme coin.
