TIME Magazine unveiled their third annual list of the 25 Most Influential People on the Internet on June 26, which features people from all walks of the industry: movies, television, music, fashion and just pop culture in general.

A few notable selections on the list include RihannaBTSChance the Rapper and Katy Perry. Rihanna is highlighted for her trademark fearlessness, as the singer unabashedly shares real-life moments on social media from calling out her haters with a Gucci Mane meme or becoming the star of a movie that was birthed by her Twitter fans. Lil Chano is recognized for his massive success that was last spring's Coloring Book, which went on to become the first streaming-only album to chart on the Billboard 200 and win a Grammy. 

As for BTS? They've quickly risen as the one of the biggest K-pop acts to grab international attention, thanks to their appealing music and devoted social media following. Back in May, the group unsurprisingly won Top Social Artist at the 2017 Billboard Music Awards. Kim Kardashian, Chrissy Teigen, Donald Trump, Matt Furie (the genius artist behind the Pepe the Frog meme) and Joanne the Scammer are some of the other familiar faces on TIME's list.
