Katy Perry beats Bieber and Trump to Twitter Record by Becoming First Person With 100 Million Followers

Posted In: News Date:Jun 17th, 2017

It wasn’t Barack Obama, or Justin Bieber or even Donald Trump. The first person to hit 100 million followers on Twitter is Katy Perry.

The pop star became the most followed person on Twitter last year and the release last week of her album Witness is likely to have helped push her number of followers into nine figures.

Perry is comfortably ahead of Bieber who has 96.7 million and Obama on 90.8 million.
