Lady Gaga Breaks Twitter Record, Gains 20 Million Followers
What would you tweet to 20 million followers?
Seems like a heavy burden for common folk, but for Gaga it’s just another day in the life of a pop icon. The bizarre (and quite controversial) singer has become the first to gain an astronomical following on the popular social site, a barrier she defeated over this past weekend.
Gaga shot to superstardom with the release of The Fame and subsequent smash LP The Fame Monster. Now, the quirky vocalist is a LGBT advocate, a zany pop culture influencer and one of the most sought after musicians. We’re guessing breaking Twitter records pales in comparison.
While the frontrunner on Twitter, she’s trailing RihRih in terms of YouTube and Facebook popularity, but hey, it’s all in the life of a pop icon! --Niki McGloster
