Lady Gaga has another title to add to her her ever growing list: most followed person on Twitter. On Saturday, Mother Monster surpassed the 20 million follow mark on the social networking service.

In August of 2010, Gaga first surpassed Britney Spears to be the most followed person on Twitter

Mashable reports that the top 5 most-followed people are all musicians.

While Lady Gaga is the reigning winner, Justin Bieber follows with 18 million followers while Katy Perry comes in third place with 15.7 million followers. Shakira and Rihanna are neck in neck with 14.5 million followers and 14.4 million followers respectively.

Twitter isn’t the only social media outlet Gaga is influential in. With 48.8 million fans on Facebook and in close to 830,000 circles on Google+, her authority as a taste maker continues to grow.

With the launch of her social network Little Monsters and her non-profit Born This Way Foundation, Lady Gaga’s influence continues to grow.
