Lady Gaga is Queen of Twitter: Sorry, Britney!

Lady Gaga has a lot of followers on Twitter — the most in the world, in fact. Until very recently this title was held by Britney Spears, but Gaga’s follower count has finally surpassed hers. How symbolic! As of this writing, Lady Gaga has 5,741,164 followers, while Spears can only boast a trifling 5,703,531.

Lady Gaga celebrated her historic achievement with an amusing YouTube clip “sent while changing backstage at The Monster Ball in Tacoma.” Take a look at the benevolent Queen of Twitter’s message to all her loyal subjects after the jump. Do you follow either Gaga or Spears? How long do you think Gaga’s record will hold out?

    How does the saying go… Twitter is like the Special Olympics. No matter who wins, you’re still retarded.

      hahaha I really liked that,,, gaga is just a retarded girl. And I don’t know why people support her. She’s just a transvestite with too much lucky. ¬.¬

    Britney who?

  • Agustin

    I’ll vote for the one that is actually talented: the one that sings live, the one that write songs, the one that play instruments… Yes, and is not the “Toxic” Girl…

    • Mal

      Yes. The one who writes songs about going to a club and wanting to ride some guys wang. What a talent we are blessed to have.

      • Laura

        I know she writes such eloquent and meaningful songs.

  • etm

    Ugh, I hate Twitter. When I see Amanda Bynes on the Twitter ticker on I want to vomit.

  • alex_n_dru

    I’m proud to say I don’t follow either. I don’t care for Gaga or Britney. Indie all the way. Oh and of course, the entire glee cast.

    Thing is, Lady Gaga does her own tweets, Britney doesn’t… its beyond me as to how Britney has so many followers because of that.

  • Rion

    c’mon Britney! You can overtake Gaga again!!

  • Martin Haro

    Oof – bad acting much? When you’re not convincing as yourself it’s kind of a problem.

    Enjoy your queendom, GaGa. Just wait until Madonna joins Twitter.

    Oh wait – she’s got better thing to do.

    I love Gaga!!!

  • J

    When they were close, it was close. Not anymore! Gaga is whooping her now by 40,000, it’s over people. Britney can’t catch up. :)

    • HenryBootieCue

      Probably because of all the uglee little misfits opening a bunch of ghost twitter accounts! LOLZ Question: Why are gaga’s fan’s so defensive?
