Methodology:

Using a data scraping tool, the past 200 posts of the celebrities featured were gathered. The posts were then narrowed down to posts that included text rather than a repost or photo etc, creating the total posts figure.

The posts were then run through the QuillBot grammar checker to get the following: number of words and number of errors. The number of errors were divided by the number of posts to calculate the error per post figure, which is what the final ranking was based on.
