Can you tell how popular someone is just by looking at their face?

Even more specifically–can you tell who has the most Twitter followers just by looking at their profile picture?

We are about to find out.

This is our next Citizen Science Project, where we try out crazy ideas, theories and experiments to find new truths:

We have carefully selected three gentleman and three ladies on Twitter. To make the test as accurate as possible we choose six individuals, about the same age, with smiling headshot profile pictures.

  • One of these photos has about 300 followers on Twitter
  • One has about 1,000 followers on Twitter
  • One has over 5,000 followers on Twitter

Which one do you think it is?

Would love it if you would take this five question test below–don’t over think it, try to go with your gut feeling.

Take the Quiz:
