Katy Perry Ranks Most Popular On Twitter

Katy Perry
Katy Perry has become the most popular Twitter user in the world, deposing Justin Bieber as the top account on the social network, according to The Guardian.

Perry now has just over 46.5 million followers on Twitter to Bieber's 46.49 million, ending his nine-month reign as the most-followed user on the service. The buzz around her new album Prism is the main reason for Perry's current social surge.

Musicians remain some of the most popular users on Twitter, accounting for four of the five most-followed accounts. Lady Gaga's 40.4 million followers puts her third, having spent three years as the biggest Twitter star before being overtaken by Bieber in January this year.

Taylor Swift's 36.25 million followers puts her fifth on the chart, with only US president Barack Obama breaking up the top five with his 39.27 million followers.

It's a far cry from the days in 2009 when Britney Spears, actor Ashton Kutcher and CNN were battling to become the first Twitter account with more than 1 million followers – a race won by Kutcher.
