Justin Bieber claims Gaga’s Twitter crown
Justin Bieber is officially the most popular celebrity on Twitter, with news that he has overtaken fellow pop star Lady Gaga for the coveted title. Both stars have been hovering around the 33 million mark, but Justin overtook his 26-year-old rival by several thousand on January 21.
Gaga acknowledged Justin’s growing Twitter fan base earlier this month – writing in a message to the 18-year-old star, ‘So proud of Justin Bieber and all the Beliebers! I'm only happy to see your fans growing in size, you all deserve it!’ She has held the title of 'most followed' user on the website since she overtook previous Twitter queen Britney Spears in 2010.
Justin and Gaga are followed by Katy Perry in third place, while Rihanna comes in fourth ahead of US President Barack Obama.
