Katy Perry Surges Past Lady Gaga
As of early Friday morning, Katy Perry had 40,150,336 followers and she is followed by Lady Gaga, who had 39,389,617 followers on the social networking site.
Perry will still have a little ways to go to top the most-followed person on Twitter, Justin Bieber, who had 42,491,906 followers as of early Friday morning.
Lady Gaga used to hold the overall Twitter follower crown but Bieber surpassed her in January of this year. Gaga really slowed down her activity on the social media site after that occurred, having only tweeted once between mid-February and early June, according to FMQB.
But things have changed drastically since Lady Gaga announced her new album and app, ARTPOP. In fact, she tweeted 13 separate times on Wednesday.
Perry will be releasing her new album, "Prism" on October 22nd and Lady Gaga's "ARTPOP" album will be released in November. Gaga says the much buzzed about ARTPOP app is "is in essence, an interactive jewel case".
