Britney Spears crushes the competition on the charts and on Twitter.com – the pop princess has become the first person on the popular social networking site to garner more than 5 million followers.
The milestone comes less than a week after Brit surpassed Ashton Kutcher to become the web’s most popular Tweeter.
As of Saturday afternoon, Britney had 5,015,346 followers, with Ashton trailing at 4,982,734. In should be noted that Ashton does his own Tweeting, while Britney’s account is a mix of the star’s posts and ones from her team and management.
Britney also has nearly 800,000 followers more than Lady Gaga — pop’s current charttopping sensation.
