Katy Perry Reaches 50 Million Twitter Followers

By: Alexandria Sardam - February 1, 2014

Katy Perry has had a big week in music. The singer not only swept the no. 1 spot on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart with hit “Dark Horse,” the beauty just earned herself over 50 million Twitter followers. The whopping follower number contributes to her title of most followed artist on Twitter.

So what does it take to be the most followed musician on Twitter? Perry recently came into a Twitter following of over 50,055,293 and growing.

Perry took over for most followed artist on Twitter last November when her follower amount grew larger than the recently arrested Justin Bieber.

The singer took to twitter to announce the great news saying, “Oh yeah AND we grew to 50 million Katycats! Eh, regular day at the office.”

The other top-ranking artist on Twitter include Justin Bieber at 49 million, Lady Gaga 41 million Britney Spears at 35 million and Rihanna at 34 million. Wondering where the Queen Bey sits with Twitter followers? She’s at about 13 million.

It’s really no surprise Perry landed the coveted spot since she earned 18 million followers in 2013. That crazy amount of followers made her the top follower-earning artist that year.

Will the woman ever stop? Probably not since she cleverly uses her twitter as a way to get her new album out and fans involved with promises of retweets.
