Gaga and Bieber party on with 9 million Twitter fans, Kevin Tsai leaps ahead on Weibo
Tuesday 26 April 2011
Pop stars Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber are edging further and further away from the rest of the world's top microbloggers. Bieber's fan count clicked over the 9 million milestone last week while Lady Gaga still rules supreme with her 9.5 million "little monsters."
American pop singer Britney Spears is third on the list of most popular microbloggers with 7.6 million followers while US president Barack Obama and reality TV star Kim Kardashian are not far away with their 7.5 million and 7.3 million followers respectively.
Taiwanese TV show host Kevin Tsai not only exceeded 6 million followers last week, he also leaped ahead of fellow Sina user and Chinese actress Zhao Wei and country singer Taylor Swift.
According to Listorious, talk show host Ellen DeGeneres didn't add a single fan to her Twitter clan during the week.
Perhaps things will change for DeGeneres this week after Lady Gaga appears on the Ellen DeGeneres Show to perform her latest release, "Judas."
In September 2010, Twitter had 175 million registered users, while Sina reports that Weibo had more than 80 million registered users in January 2011.
