Singer Katy Perry Becomes First Person To Reach 80m Followers On Twitter


Popular American singer, Katy Perry has become the most followed person on Twitter. Katy who created her twitter account in 2009 , has now been crowned the queen of the social networking site after she became the first person to reach 80 million followers.

However, Justin Bieber , who Katy clambered past in 2013 , has 73 million followers, while Taylor Swift follows closely behind as she secures third position with 69 million fans on Twitter.


One of the reasons the 31-year-old thinks she’s so popular on Twitter is the fact she writes her own Tweets.

“I would say 90 per cent of my Tweets, I’ve just made them up and you can tell because many of them are misspelled and full of typos.

“But the other five per cent is work related or it’s just to keep people in the know about where I’m playing or if I’m doing a show and I always get really confused.” She said recently:

Asked if she replies to her fans on Twitter, she told Mashable: “Sometimes I do, I kind of do a lot more of it when I’m in the zone mode.

“Right now I’m in a relaxed, chilled vacationing zone, I’ve got my spanx on and I’m just taking a little break …

“I think I have to find that balance between Tweeting too much and plus I have so many followers that nobody really wants me to fill up their timeline.”
