And the winner is…. Katy Perry! Yes, that’s right. This weekend the ‘Roar’ star became the first star to reach 50 million Twitter followers. Pretty amazing if you think about it. Now Perry can Tweet to (officially) 50.1 million fans!
She celebrated the occasion by tweeting: “Oh yeah AND we grew to 50 million Katycats! Eh, regular day at the office.” Imagine having 50 million people following you as if your everyday life was that interesting.
Coincidentally, John Mayer has recently rejoined Twitter himself. He’s obviously no where near the 50 million followers that Perry has, but in this day in age he’ll probably get there. Justin Bieber currently resides at 49.3 million followers. We expect him to eclipse 50 at some point while he’s serving one of his prison sentences.
It really is amazing how many people follow celebrities. Katy Perry? Seriously?
