A reading-level analysis conducted by BuzzFeed determines Twitter’s 10 most followed celebrities tweet at or below a sixth grade level.
Tweets from President Barack Obama rank highest at a sixth-grade level reading capacity, while tweets from the Biebs rank lowest at just under a first-grade level.
Taylor Swift and Britney Spears tweet around a fourth-grade level.
And narrowly bested by the POTUS, Katy Perry and Lady Gaga tweet at a 5.88 and 5.74 reading level, respectively.
To determine the data, the reading calculator uses cues like word length and sentence complexity to determine the grade level a piece of text would be appropriate for.
