May’s top performing post was made by Leicester City Football Club, who have been on a role as of late in both the football and social media fields. After winning a victory in the Premier League, they made a photo post announcing themselves as the “Champions of England” garnered them a massive amount of interactions, more than 4 times that of the running up post.
