Katy Perry Shatters Records With This Major Twitter Milestone

Katy went through ‘horrible’ scrutiny

The pop star became the first person to reach 100 million Twitter followers Friday.

The second most-followed Twitter account belongs to Justin Bieber, who now has 96.7 million followers.

The singer's new Twitter count puts her ahead of Justin Bieber, who comes in second place with 96.7 million followers, Barack Obama (90.8 million), Perry's rumored nemesis Taylor Swift (85.1 million) and Rihanna (74.1 million). The report claims that up to 15 percent of the Twitter users could be fake accounts. By early 2017, Katy's follower base grew to 95 million.

Perry has shown Twitter as much love as its shown her, as it's been one of her main forms of communication with her fans. "She's not thinking about Katy and something that happened five years ago, she's moved on and she wishes Katy would too", a source revealed to Hollywood Life.




The Twitter record isn't Katy's only social media record, either.

32-year-old Perry has just released her introspective new album Witness. Perry's 18 month Witness tour kicks off in the fall.

During the event, fans were able to watch Perry live in a house in real time as she did everything from entertain famous friends to engage in a therapy session. Congratulations @KatyPerry, the first to reach 100 million followers!
