Justin Bieber now has the bragging rights to this record! The Biebs became the first person to reach 40 million Twitter followers! That’s a lot of Beliebers!
For a while now, Lady Gaga held the title with the most Twitter followers at 37.9 million followers. I’m sure little monsters will fight to bring Mama monster back on top. Katy Perry is next in line with 37.4 million followers, President Barack Obama with 32.2 million, Rihanna with 29.8 million and Taylor Swift with 28.6 million.
Of course there’s always been chatter that these famous people “buy” their followers. According to the site SocialBakers, which checks fake followers vs. real ones, 44 percent of Bieber’s current followers are fake, 21 percent are inactive, and only 35 percent are considered to be “good” followers.
Justin Bieber is coming back to Detroit this July at The Joe! Who are we going to see there?!
