Despite what Kanye West may think, Taylor Swift and Beyoncé have one thing in common: They’re among the most influential people on the Internet.


That is, according to Time, which analyzed social-media followings, site traffic, overall ability to drive news, and more to put togetheir their list of The 30 Most Influential People on the Internet. Their respective inclusion is no surprise: Swift is arguably the most popular pop star today. Bey created an Internet firestorm with her clandestine album release.

A sampling of who else made the list: Barack Obama, Jimmy Fallon, and Caitlin McNeill—the one responsible for the e-firestorm of The Dress.

A previous version of this story incorrectly stated Kanye West was on Time‘s list. The story has been updated to correct that error.
