Katy Perry Becomes First to Hit 100 Million Twitter Followers

Katy Perry Becomes First to Hit 100 Million Twitter Followers

The "Chained to the Rhythm" singer just hit 100 million followers on Twitter-earning herself a place in Twitter history.

Of course, many of her followers may not be flesh-and-blood human beings but bots. Justin Bieber is a close second with 96.7 million followers, and Taylor Swift, with whom Perry is rumored to be feuding, has 85.1 million followers.

According to the most recent estimate, Twitter averages 328 million users monthly. That's a 10 percent increase from what the CEO initially claimed. She's tweeted more than 8,500 times, debuting music and videos and making major announcements.

Twitter now has 319 million monthly active users. Her first tweet dated back to 2009.




Her Witness tour in the United States and Canada kicks off on September 9 and runs through February 2018.

Katy Perry's weird Witness live-stream may have worked wonders after all, as she's just broke an almighty record on Twitter. On the show, she discussed about having suicidal thoughts earlier and even wrote a song in reference to that, By the Grace of God, back in 2013. Congratulations to @katyperry, the first to reach 100 million followers!

While having a conversation with her therapist Dr. Siri Sat Nam Singh, Perry opened up about being depressed, having issues with drinking, and experiencing suicidal thoughts.
