Compared to Instagram Twitter turned into a small influencer. Still it gives an idea of the impact of social media where the popular top athletes lead the top lists. If you consider Ronda Rousey a judoka, she does herself, she id the biggest influencer in judo with 3.3 million followers. Ofcourse Big Teddy is the best active judoka with more than half a million judo fans who follow the eight time world champion.

Furthermore Rafaela Silva made a tremendous jump from practically nobody in twitter to the most followed female judoka in the world, now world and Olympic champion.
Tadahiro Nomura is still in the top five of judo influencers, a place where he should be in forever. The international Judo Federation is the biggest Federation on twitter, also logical, followed by the British Judo Association. New arrivals this year is Masyu Baker. But where twitter is hard to find is forinstance Fabio Basile with just 3808 followers, but insta is made for him. The new generation is on insta with dazzling figures pulverating the twitter best lists.
