BTS has topped Billboard's Twitter Top Tracks chart.

The chart is a list of the week's most shared and/or mentioned songs on Twitter. Not only did BTS beat out One Direction's Harry Styles and Niall Horan on the chart to be #1 with "Not Today", they also ranked "Fire" at #4 even though it's been some time since either tracks have been released.

Congratulations to BTS.

Can we please praise a group without bringing another group down? And please I know you are proud of our boys, I am too. ARMYS should also be humble and kind like BTS.

It’s because BTS has really rabid fangirls, who are obsessed with YT views (just like..uhm.. I don’t know.. ALL rabid kpop fans), and BTS is really popular among european and american fans...

I actually like BTS’s blood sweat and tears, their best song in my opinion. It’s just the kpop fans, not only bts, fans that are obsessed with youtube views, which is odd in my opinion, like.. if you like a song then just listen to it, why need to compete with views....

i think it's partly because YB became a sort of platform for music videos in the past decade or so, even for western artists. before that you had TV channels that streamed music continuously where everyone got their source of MVs, but with the rise of YB, music videos started to be watched by people there. even the appearances of all the VEVOs and official artist accounts became a thing after that and MVs get streamed a hella lot there. it /is/ a sort of telling sign of how good your song is doing. and kpop fans are extra dedicated so they love seeing their favs doing great, and it's an aspect they can even visibly control. also, for kpop it gets even more important bc YB says a lot about its international popularity. for international fans, the site is like no1 source for kpop MVs. so the viewer count, again, is a sign of popularity. that's why they are so hung up on breaking various viewing records. plus streaming helps with various charts or even awards, though i'm not that knowledgeable about that part.

Well, BTS made a huge accomplishment. We can all think of some groups that started out popular just because of their label, but look at BTS.

welcome to 2017. It is human to feel proud when ur stan group is on top- may it be youtube views or in the charts. Of course us "rabid" fans will compete. The rush is amazing and very pleasurable.
