Norman Reedus is a fan favorite on “The Walking Dead.” His character, Daryl Dixon, is one of the major reasons people keep watching the AMC zombie drama. According to a March 14 report by Wetpaint, Norman Reedus now leads the pack of other “The Walking Dead” stars when it comes to social media.

On March 13, Norman Reedus hit a major milestone on Twitter. That was the day he reached one million followers. He was the first “The Walking Dead” star to reach the one million mark.

“Million twitters yeahhh Thank u guys!!! [sic]” Norman Reedus tweeted on March 13.

Other stars of “The Walking Dead” also have an impressive Twitter following. Michael Cudlitz, who now portrays Abraham Ford, has 42,000 followers. Lauren Cohan (Maggie Greene) has 415,000 followers and Emily Kinney, the recently kidnapped Beth, has 244,000 followers. Based on those numbers, Norman Reedus is definitely leading the pack.

It is unknown who will be the next “millionaire” on Twitter from “The Walking Dead” cast. Based on the numbers, Lauren Cohan is in the lead, but if Emily Kinney's character, Beth, becomes more prominent, it is possible she could be the next in line to reach one million followers. Seeing it is possible that Beth was kidnapped by Gabriel and could be traded to the Hunters, she could reach that Twitter milestone first. With the possible romance between Beth and Daryl, she may reach milestone very quickly.
