Britney Spears has the Most Twitter Followers
She’s beating Ashton by a very narrow margin.
Pop princess Britney Spears just became the Twitter queen, with 4,947, 798 followers, surging past Ashton Kutcher (@aplusk) with 4,942,968 followers.
That’s a difference of fewer than 5,000 followers as of this writing.
Britney (@britneyspears) went all ecstatic: “WOW!!!!! #1 on Twitter! Thank you! Tweet me some questions this morning! xoxo –Brit.” Ashton’s not so thrilled: “2nd most pop Q “What do U think about Brittney having more followers than u?” Answer “I don’t care…”
That’s funny, because back in April 2009, Ashton cared a lot, exhorting his followers on Twitter to help him beat CNN and reach 1 million followers. On the other side, CNN anchor Anderson Cooper used valuable airtime to beg people to follow the network’s tweets.
But it was Ashton who crossed the finish line first. “Victory is ours!!!” he tweeted.
Of the two, Ashton is a lot more hands on, doing all of his tweets himself. Britney, in true princess fashion, uses her team and her manager to post most tweets, although she does some herself, signing them “Brit.” Ashton writes about family matters and political issues; Britney keeps it strictly business, except when wishing followers a happy Easter or Mother’s Day.
