Last week Twitter Counter, which tracks and monitors twitter usage, forecasted that Justin Bieber would surpass Lady Gaga and yes it did turn out to be true. The charming prince of Twitter thrashed the Queen of twitter (maybe I should say former Queen) with a grand 33,342,299 followers. Justin Bieber is followed by Mother Monster, Kate Perry, Rihanna the great President of the USA, Barack Obama with 26,183,711 followers.
Twitter Counter said “After putting up a great fight (which took longer than we expected), Justin Bieber took Lady Gaga’s crown this early morning.”
Bieber, the teen heartthrob, who is just 18 year old now had created a sensation in 2008 with his ‘Baby’ album. In the last one and a half years, he had released two albums – ‘Under the mistletoe’ and ‘Believe’. Bieber’s twitter followers have brought many marketers eyes boggling and made them concentrate on the twitter for more followers. Bieber was also recognized as the third-most powerful celebrity in the world with his grand fan followers.
Lady Gaga has accepted this in a cool way by tweeting “So proud of @justinbieber and all the Beliebers! I am only happy to see your fans growing in size, you all deserve it. Monsters support you.”
