Katy Perry Becomes the First Person to Hit 90 Million Twitter Followers
The artist retains her crown as the most-followed person on Twitter with the milestone.
Singer Katy Perry, already the most-followed person on Twitter, officially hit 90 million followers on Friday, becoming the first to reach that milestone on the site.
Falling just ahead of Taylor Swift (79 million) and Justin Bieber (83.9 million), Perry's account was hacked in May, tweeting out offensive language with #HackersGonnaHack. At the time she had 89 million followers.
Twitter celebrated Perry's milestone on Friday — how else? — with a tweet, saying, "we're gonna need a really big dance floor."
See Perry's five most retweeted posts (often involving the devoted fan bases of One Direction and Justin Bieber) below.
The new song Skyscraper by @ddlovato is pure perfection. Her voice is one of the BEST undiscovered beauties. Can't wait for the full record.— KATY PERRY (@katyperry) July 13, 2011
