Ashton Kutcher is thisclose to losing his Twitter crown to a Southern blonde with a bad weave.
Kutcher became the king of Twitter after famously beating CNN to 1 million followers last April, but has been getting tough competition from pop star Britney Spears in recent weeks. As of May 17, Kutcher still has more followers than anyone else on the micro-blogging site, but it seems the funnyguy’s days as Twitter’s most popular user are numbered — thanks to the “Womanizer” star.
The two are neck-and-neck in a race to hit 5 million followers.
Spears — who only sporadically posts updates to her Twitter — is nevertheless slowly closing in on Kutcher – and the gap between their number of followers gets smaller every day. Ashton currently has 4,890,797 followers, while Spears is standing steady at 4,878,516.
