The Queen of Twitter
Katy Perry, the famous singer-songwriter, is known for being a massive icon in the pop genre.
She has even been on movies, like The Smurfs, and appeared on games, like her special The Sims 3 expansions.
She is the queen of pop, over-sized cupcakes, Teenage Dreams and, of course, Twitter.
On the 1st of July last year – 2016 -, Katy Perry officially became the most followed person on Twitter. She pushed past Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift, and even now, in 2017, she still holds the title for most followed on Twitter. The pop-star currently has over 95.5 MILLION followers.
The reason for her popularity? There are a few possible reasons. Perhaps it’s because of her talent and songs. Maybe it’s because people didn’t want Justin Bieber to be the King of Twitter anymore. One of the main reasons is possibly because of how relatable and down to earth her Tweets are. For example, here is one of her Tweets:
This 32 year old popstar joined Twitter in February, 2009. Since then, she has retweeted statements from Obama – who is currently 4th in the most-followed Twitter leaderboard -, praised fellow singers, revealed she is a proud ‘Belieber’, showed her support and pride for charities, and kept her fans up-to-date with what she was doing – from concerts to her just sleeping in. Katy Perry has posted – currently – 7,587 Tweets! She is also following 187 people – like Cher and Bette Midler, for example -, and has liked 3,547 of other people’s Tweets.
One of Katy Perry’s most popular Tweets is her congratulating Niall Horan, from One Direction, whose band has reached no.1 on the U.S Itunes chart. She Tweeted ‘@NiallOfficial congratulations, you didn’t let me down! xo’ on the 13th of March, 2012. It had over then 115,900 Retweets and more then 71,200 Likes – this was when she was 3rd on the most-followed Twitter leaderboard.
Although she may not be the most popular person on other social media, she still has a great amount of followers and likes! On Instagram, she has over 60 Million followers. And, on Youtube, she currently has 20,566,432 subscribers. Her Facebook page has 70,726,635 Likes, currently.
Katy Perry, this colourful star, is working her way to being the most followed Twitter celeb for a year, and we wish her all the best with it. Hopefully, this amazing woman will hold the title of ‘Queen of Twitter’ for many years to come…
