TIME magazine has released its annual unranked roundup of the most influential people on the Internet for the second year running.

The list highlights a total of 30 individuals from various backgrounds like politics and entertainment. These influencers have in some way or other managed to dominate the media scene and create a prominent presence online for themselves over the past year.

Contenders were determined based on "their global impact on social media and their overall ability to drive news" be it in a positive or negative fashion.

Out of the 30 individuals listed this year, seven were featured in last year's list as well.

The seven include India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Los Angeles based lifestyle blogger and designer Joy Cho, Swedish vlogger PewDiePie, J.K. Rowling, Kim Kardashian West, Josh Ostrovsky whose moniker is The Fat Jew, and editor of news aggregator the Drudge Report, Matt Drudge.

Other influential people featured this year include 2016 US Presidential candidate Donald Trump, Caitlyn Jenner, Kanye West, Christiano Ronaldo, James Corden, Drake, American radio personality DJ Khaled, as well as creators of the "Damn Daniel" vine Joshua Holz and Daniel Lara.
