Katy Perry Is Now Officially the Most-Followed Person On Twitter
Most of us are pretty proud that we have a few hundred — or even a couple thousand, if we're really, really lucky — followers on Twitter. But Katy Perry has blown by the rest of us mere mortals, setting a Twitter record for 90 million followers and making herself the most-followed person on Twitter ever.
Twitter personally congratulated her — the abundance of emoji is the social-media equivalent of sending her a dozen roses:

Ninety. Million. There are 310 million active users. That means that 1 out of every 3.4 people follows the pop superstar. Granted, some of them might be bots, but that's still pretty darn impressive.
Right behind her: Justin Bieber, with 83.9 million followers. Then there's Taylor Swift with 79 million; President Obama, who has 75.8 million; and, kind of surprisingly, YouTube, which is much further behind the pack with 62.7 million followers (amazing bio, BTW: "lol watch this").
Is it because of #relatable tweets like this?
Every1 else havin a lit Friday night & I'm here examining the nose pore cleaner strip I just peeled off & I must say, nothing can top this.
