NEW YORK: Who is the most popular celebrity on Twitter?
Till now it was Justin Bieber. But Katy Perry has overtaken him to become the most popular celeb on the site.
With over 46,477,000 followers as of now, 29-year-old Katy has just about 2,000 more followers than 19-year-old Justin Bieber, according to The Verge.
So how long will Katy be the queen of Twitter? No one knows. But her twitter following is said to be rising faster than Bieber. So it could be a while before someone else takes her Twitter title.
The biggest push in her Twitter fan base was triggered by the release of her new album Prism on October 22.
Katy, who doesn’t tweet as much as Bieber, told USA Today recently, “I feel like I’ve learned how to tame that social media dragon.’’
Bieber had snatched the Twitter title from Lady Gaga in January when he surpassed her follower base of 33.33 million. And Mother Monster held the title from 2010 till January.
Now with 40 million followers, Gaga is third on Twitter, followed by President Barack Obama at 39 million and Taylor Swift at 36 million.
