Beliebers Overtake Little Monsters: Justin Bieber Unseats Lady Gaga On Twitter

I usually feel pretty good about my Twitter following. But then I heard that Justin Bieber overtook Lady Gaga as the King of Twitter (or do we call it the Mayor when someone rules a form of social media?)Either way, the Beliebers went for it recently by trending #33MillionBeliebers -- a nod to how many followers JB would need to take down Lady Gaga's 33,381,197 followers. As of this writing, Bieber is at 33,408,946. (Gaga had previously taken the title from Britney Spears -- I know, I was surprised about that too.) Only about 20,000 followers separate the two mega stars, so it's really still anybody's game.
Katy Perry, Rihanna, and the POTUS round out the top five.
