Social media is a pretty powerful way for celebs to connect with their fans. Recently, the headlines were abuzz when Kim Kardashian usurped Beyonc茅 for the number one spot for most followed person on Instagram (the Beyhive was none too pleased, but don鈥檛 worry, Bey is still/forever Queen). Today, we have a new challenger.

Taylor Swift overtook Kim KW in the Instagram race today by coming in with a whopping 45.7聽MILLION聽followers. Kim Kardashian trails behind with 45.6 million followers and Beyonc茅 takes third with 45 million. In honor of Taylor鈥檚 latest achievement (behind winning 鈥淰ideo of the Year鈥 at MTV鈥檚 2015 VMA, being the highest paid celeb couple of the year with BF Calvin Harris and having the most cameos from other celebs on her tour. Ever.), we thought we鈥檇 take a look back at some of her epic Instagram moments this year that broke the Internet (again, sorry, Kim KW).


1. Becoming a godmother:聽The first time she met Jaime King鈥檚 son and her godson Leo Thames Newman was so awwww-inducing, it got two million likes. She wrote simply, 鈥淢eeting my boy.鈥 And her face says everything.


2. Flowers from Kanye:聽Kim鈥檚 husband sent Tay Tay this massive bouquet after she presented him with the Vanguard Award at the VMAs last month. Taylor captioned this one, 鈥淎wwww Kanye sent me the coolest flowers!! #KanTay2020 #BFFs鈥


3. This incredibly meta sweater pic:聽A fan sent this sweater to Taylor and she shared it with the world. Taylor thanked her fan by writing in the caption, 鈥淪omeone knitted this sweater for me of a Polaroid of myself and gave it to my mom tonight at the show. It has very quickly become my everything.聽Thank you, mysterious knitter.鈥


4. This adorable photo with Calvin Harris:聽Taylor found love this year in the form of DJ Calvin Harris. She posted this pic from her Fourth of July bash of themselves and聽cheekily wrote in the caption, 鈥淔riendly relations between Scotland and America. @calvinharris.鈥


5.聽#SquadGoals AF:聽Everyone knows by now that Taylor has the ultimate #girlsquad (I mean, we鈥檝e all seen聽Bad Blood by now). Taylor鈥檚 Instagram is filled with pics like this one where she鈥檚 got her arms around Selena Gomez while Hayley Williams, Jaime King and others look on.聽Yup, Taylor Swift truly is the ultimate BFF.
