Newsmax Soars To Top On Twitter As Social Media Takes Off

( Newsmax, which has quickly emerged as one of the most popular alternative conservative news networks in recent years, soared to the top of social media interactions in November – outpacing major left-wing news outlets like the New York Times and even conservative news channel Fox News.

Data from Emplifi show how Newsmax is consistently ranking in the top three news outlets on social media platforms Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram – and the network is achieving it despite being throttled and blocked in the same way most other conservative accounts are.

With more than 10 million followers across its Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and Twitter accounts, Newsmax is firmly cementing itself as the top conservative competitor to Fox News.

The Emplifi data showed that Newsmax was number one overall in terms of Twitter interactions, with 2.33 million interactions in November compared to 2.31 million for the New York Times and 2.11 million for Fox News.

For Facebook, Newsmax came third in November, and number one overall for all of 2021 in terms of interactions per 1,000 followers.
