Not Kanye – nor the Kardashians. Not even Madonna, the “queen of pop.” It’s Katy Perry who became the first person on Twitter to reach the historical 100-million Follower mark.
On Friday last week, Twitter announced that “today we “#WITNESS history” as Katy Perry became the first person ever to reach this Follower count. The hashtag is of course a reference her fifth and most recent studio album.
Today, we #WITNESS history.
Congratulations @katyperry, the first to reach 100 million followers! #LoveKaty pic.twitter.com/41aJyPTtZ2
