Lady Gaga racks up 20 million Twitter followers

Lady Gaga has established herself as the unchallenged queen of Twitter, becoming the first to have 20 million followers – two million more than any other user on the site.

A relatively early adopter, @ladygaga joined the site on 26 March 2008. Unlike other stars she runs her own account, using Twitter to chat directly to her “little monsters” as she calls fans, post pictures and share information about tours and releases. She took over as the most popular person on Twitter from Britney Spears in August 2010.

Like any Twitter user, a smattering of recent tweets reveal Lady Gaga’s key obsessions. “Told you MINT would be big in fashion this spring. Naturally, I will continue to wear black. (perpetual mourner),” she informed her Coke-can headdress wearing fans. A recent tweet about a cookie – “The chef at hotel made me a surprise. So awesome to see the message spreading already. One cookie at a time.” – inspired 179 comments.
