Lady Gaga Vs. Justin Bieber on Twitter
Wed, 05 Jan 2011 12:09:26
Belieb it! Justin Bieber has overtaken former Twitter queen Britney Spears to become the second most followed celebrity according to statistics provided to the Beehive by Famecount. The celeb with the most Twitter followers? Lady Gaga, of course. It's going to be a battle between The Bieb and Gaga, that's for sure, over who truly runs Twitter.
Bieber broke the 6.5 million followers mark earlier this week and continues to attract new fans on Twitter at a rate of over 80,000 a week – quicker than almost every other social media user.
In September, Bieber passed President Barack Obama (who currently has 6.2 million followers) to make it into third place. Gaga still has a million more followers that The Bieb, and she continues to amass even more followers at a faster clip. So don't expect Bieber to cruise to #1...yet.
All the reports in the press as of late have pointed to a Gaga Vs. Britney Spears showdown this Spring, when both divas release new albums. Forget Spears. It's Gaga Vs. The Bieb and its battleground is Twitter.
Do you follow Justin Bieber on Twitter? How about Gaga? And what about Brit?
