In reaction to the news that she is the first celebrity to acquire over 10 million followers on Twitter, Lady Gaga exclaimed: “10 Million Monsters! I’m speechless, we did it! It’s an illness how I love you. Leaving London smiling.”
She had already taken over Britney Spear’s top spot in twitter last August shortly after she herself had surpassed Ashton Kutcher three months earlier.
Lady Gaga is also very popular on Facebook with 24 million likes, or fans, but still trails behind Eminem and the Facebook and Texas Hold’em Poker pages.
In celebration of her new twitter status, she posted a photo and personal message to all her fans on twitter.
