GaGa takes No. 1 spot on Twitter

Not only has Lady Gaga arguably stolen the 'pop princess' crown from Britney Spears, but she has also surpassed Spears' world record following on Twitter.

By the morning of Monday 23rd August, Gaga had 5,737,377 followers, more than anyone else on the planet, and ahead of Britney's 5,701,905, having surpassed the teen star over the weekend.

However the 'Pokerface' singer can't rest on her laurels; with Justin Bieber adding around 800,000 new Twitter followers a month to his existing 4,500,000, the teen star could pass Gaga within six months.
