About

Big Twitter Artist is a term used to describe any artist with a large Twitter following, usually at least over 10,000 followers. Starting in late 2010s, following the rapid growth of art Twitter, memes and discussions pertaining to big artist accounts and their social media interactions with smaller accounts became commonplace on Twitter. In September 2021, a comic about interactions between big and small artists on Twitter went viral, inspiring edits and debates in the following days, with another comic going viral in May 2024.

Origin

Posts referring to "big artists" on Twitter gained notable presence on the site following the rapid growth of art Twitter in the second half of 2010s. In the 2020, meme art format in which small Twitter accounts expressed feeling honored and humbled when their art was reposted by large accounts gained notable popularity. For example, on September 29th, 2020, artist @JMG_PartyBean made a tweet[1] that gained over 17,700 retweets and 111,500 likes in one year (shown below, left). On December 26th, 2020, artist @rosy_maple_moth tweeted[2] an object-labeling meme that gained over 11,100 retweets and 74,900 likes in that period (shown below, right).
