Lady Gaga Makes Twitter History, First To Garner 10 Million Followers


GangStarr Girl / May 16, 2011

Lady Gaga hit a new milestone by becoming the first Twitter user to garner 10 million follows. She even beat fellow pop star Justin Bieber in an unspoken competition.

Via PopEater: Lady Gaga and the tween heartthrob have been embroiled in an unofficial social networking battle since last year, but Bieber has consistently fallen just short of the Mother Monster. Although his video for ‘Baby’ is the most watched YouTube video of all time, Gaga beat him to 1 billion total views on the site, just a day before he hit the benchmark. Meanwhile, with his approximately 27 million Facebook followers, he trails far behind her legion of over 34 million fans.

Gaga commemorated the achievement, which happened sometime around Saturday night/Sunday morning, with a tweet reading, “10MillionMonsters! I’m speechless, we did it! Its an illness how I love you. Leaving Londonsmiling.”
