Lady Gaga Dethrones Britney Spears

Move over Britney Spears, there's a new queen B in town. Or should we say Queen T?

Lady Gaga has officially dethroned Britney as the queen of twitter after reaching over 5.7 million followers.

Gaga has now posted a video link on her twitter account thanking fans for making her the most popular person on Twitter, and of course her little Monsters were thrilled.

In the video she says, “Hello world, this is Lady Gaga, queen of twitter. I wanted to thank all my beautiful little monsters for following me. Thank you for beginning my reign as twitter queen. I vow to always tweet and tweet again.”

Gaga currently picks up new followers on twitter at an average of around 171,000 a week, according to website But that's nothing compared to Justin Bieber--he's amassing an average 800,000 new followers each month.

Gaga does a great job of reaching out to her fans and always posts amazing photos on her Twitter page. But it's obvious someone else tweets for Britney, making her page more impersonal.
