Katy Perry First to 50 Million Twitter Followers
6:27 pm, February 3rd, 2014
Katy Perry is the first star to reach 50 million Twitter followers.
The singer reached the milestone over the weekend, and can currently tweet to a staggering 50.1 million fans.
Perry marked the occasion by writing, “Oh yeah AND we grew to 50 million Katycats! Eh, regular day at the office.”
As it happens, Perry’s boyfriend John Mayer just rejoined Twitter after a couple of years’ absence — even giving Perry a “Follow Friday” boost.
“I’m back. What’d I miss?” wrote Mayer, later jokingly sending a link to Rebecca Black’s infamous “Friday” video with the caption, “Been waiting SO long to share this with you. It’s so bad it’s good. Take a look.”
He’s got a ways to go to match Perry’s follower base.
Justin Bieber, with 49.3 million followers, should be the next social media sensation to pass the 50M milestone.
