One Direction top social media chart.

One Direction have been rated as Britain's most influential Twitter users, ahead of the British Prime Minister.

Liam Payne took the top spot followed by his bandmates Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik.

The boy band also came ahead of Labour leader Ed Milliband on the PeerIndex list. Musician Ed Sheeran came sixth, with PM David Cameron in seventh place.

All the members of 1D, except Zayn Malik, boast more than 12 million followers on the micro-blogging site, compared with just 400,000 for Cameron. Family and friends of the teenage heartthrobs also dominated the top of the list with Louis' girlfriend Eleanor Calder being rated as more influential than Labour leader Ed, who has just 200,000 followers.

TV presenter Piers Morgan and Times journalist and author Caitlin Moran claimed high spots just ahead of comedians Ricky Gervais and Stephen Fry.
