Hay cantantes, bandas, actores y actrices que son más populares que los presidentes de diferentes países. Al menos así ocurre en Twitter, donde los mensajes escritos por los integrantes de la boy band One Direction tienen más impacto que los que comparte el presidente de Estados Unidos, Barack Obama.

*HANDOUT* July 8th 2015: One Direction launch their global campaign action/1D highlighting 2015 as a year when the world can set the agenda to end extreme poverty and tackle inequality and climate change.  The campaign aims at putting pressure on world leaders at two crucial world summits in New York in September and Paris in Dec, to commit to a better future for everyone. Action/1D will give young people across the world the chance to add their voices to global conversations about the future of people and planet in order to achieve the best possible development and climate frameworks. Fans are asked to describe the kind of world they want to live in by sharing powerful pieces of creative content, including film and photos using the #action1D hashtag. In early September, the pieces of content gathered as part of the action/1D campaign will be revealed at a global premiere ahead of the unveiling of the final sustainable development framework at the UN in New York. One Direction said: âTime and again our fans have shown how creative and powerful they can be when they unite and thatâs why we want to all join together to speak out and hopefully make a real and lasting change to the world around us. âYoung people really do have the power to help end poverty, tackle inequality and to stop dangerous climate change. Now is the time for us to unite, take action and raise our voices to show that we care about the future of our planet.â

Así, dicha red social indicó que los tuits de One Directon, eclipsaron la celebración del presidente de Barack Obama, por la decisión de la Corte Suprema de legalizar el matrimonio homosexual.

Los miembros de One Direction acaparan la mitad de los 10 mensajes más retuiteados, incluyendo los tres más populares de la red social.

Obama se quedó en el cuarto lugar de la clasificación publicada por Twitter.
