The 'All Around The World' star has a social media following as big as the country he was born in.

Justin Bieber has achieved a new milestone in his career after scoring more Twitter followers than the population of his home country of Canada.

The 'Boyfriend' singer's followers count on the social networking website now sits at 35,073,181 in total, which means it has surpassed estimates of Canada's population.

According to an unofficial report by Statistics Canada released in October 2012, the country has an estimated population of 35,002,400.

The 'As Long As You Love Me' singer has continued to break records on social media, after surpassing Lady Gaga to become the most followed person in the world back in January this year.

The Canadian star has also been breaking records outside of the internet, after he became the youngest artist to score five number one albums in the US with the release of 'Believe Acoustic'. 

Earlier this week British singer Ella-Paige Roberts-Clarke seemingly denied claims she has been dating Justin, despite pictures of the two attending Justin Timberlake's London show last week together.

Justin Bieber continues his 'Believe' world tour tonight (27th February) with a show in Birmingham.
