5 Biggest Celebrity Twitter Accounts
All celebrities are certainly not created equally. There are a handful of celebrities who have huge Twitter followings and beat out other celebrities.
Although there are tons of everyday users who have plenty of followers on Twitter, it is hard to deny that celebrities typically have the largest followings. All celebrities are certainly not created equally, however. There are a handful of celebrities who have huge Twitter followings and who beat out other celebrities by a landslide.
Whether it’s the raw talent of her music, the unique way that she dresses and acts or some combination of the two, there is no doubt that Lady Gaga has a lot of fans. Not only does she have fans who purchase her albums, go to her shows and watch everything that they can about her on television, but she also has a lot of fans who follow her on Twitter.
Lady Gaga joined Twitter on March 28, 2008 and has taken the Twitter world by a storm ever since. She became the most followed person on Twitter in August 2010 and now has almost 30 million followers, who she calls “little monsters.”
Right behind Lady Gaga on the list of most followed Twitter celebrities is Justin Bieber, the young male pop artist who has also taken the world by a storm and has many fans, both young and old. Justin Bieber also has close to 30 million Twitter followers, many of who are of the pre-teen and teen age group, but some of whom are much older and who are simply interested in his music. Justin Bieber has been closing in the gap between himself and Lady Gaga quite well lately, and may one day beat Lady Gaga’s massive group of Twitter followers. In fact, social networking sites and YouTube were a major part of Justin Bieber’s success in the beginning of his career, and he continues to utilise social networking in order to keep in contact with his fans.
Trailing in at number three on the list of the top five most followed celebrities on Twitter is Katy Perry, another pop artist. Katy Perry calls her fans and Twitter followers “KatyCats.”
Rihanna is another popular celebrity who has tons of Twitter followers. In fact, many people watch Rihanna’s Twitter due to the controversial language and the snarky comebacks that she Tweets in response to those who put her down. Many people also took to Rihanna’s Twitter page when rumors of her and Chris Brown getting back together and then having problems again surfaced.
Britney Spears has been in the pop game for years now, and fans and non-fans alike have watched the ups and downs of both her personal life and her career with a bit of fascination. Although Britney Spears was a popular face and name in the tabloids for quite a while there, she has now taken to Twitter as a means of communicating with her fans and letting them know what is going on in her personal life and with her music. In fact, Britney Spears was the most followed person on Twitter until Lady Gaga took over the position in August 2010.
