Twitter is used to express about something that happened. In Indonesia since 2012, Twitter has been widely used for campaigns during regional or presidential elections. Apart from positive campaigns, negative campaigns and even black campaigns were carried out via Twitter, and tweets become twitwar. Twitter is a social network, so the data can be analyzed using a social network analysis approach. This research was conducted to analyze which nodes (actors) are influential using the degree, between, and closeness centrality methods, while the follower rank method is used for the analysis of popular actors in "# 4niesKingOfDrama". The data were 8895 nodes with 23257 edges taken from January 1 to February 20, 2020. The results showed that Degree Centrality was 212 with the actor who had the highest influence score was the account @ Bangsul__88 and actor @airin_nz was the actor with the highest popularity value with Follower Rank of 0.98211783. This study found that among the 10 main actors with the highest Degree Centrality values, there were several accounts that were buzzer accounts. The node (Actor) with the highest influence value is not necessarily the node with the highest popularity value.
