Katy Perry is the first star to reach 50 million Twitter followers.
The singer reached the milestone over the weekend, and can currently tweet to a staggering 50.1 million fans.
Perry marked the occasion by writing:
Oh yeah AND we grew to 50 million Katycats! Eh, regular day at the office. 🙌— Katy Perry (@katyperry) February 1, 2014
As it happens, Perry’s boyfriend John Mayer just rejoined Twitter after a couple of years’ absence — even giving Perry a “Follow Friday” boost.
I'm back. What'd I miss?— John Mayer (@JohnMayer) January 31, 2014
Been waiting SO long to share this with you. It's so bad it's good. Take a look. http://t.co/nBQAvVr1OR— John Mayer (@JohnMayer) January 31, 2014
He’s got a ways to go to match Perry’s follower base.
Justin Bieber, with 49.3 million followers, should be the next social media sensation to pass the 50M milestone.
