Lady Gaga’s First Message as Twitter Queen (VIDEO)

Lady Gaga is officially Queen of Twitter, or as she calls it, just “Tween,” with 5,739,687 followers and counting, more than Britney Spears or any other celeb. She thanks each and every one of them in an inaugural video message sent – how else – via Twitter.

“I want to thank all of my beautiful little monsters for following me. Thank you for beginning my reign as Twitter Queen,” she says, channeling Glinda from Wizard Oz with a magic wand and lacy crown emblazoned with Twitter’s signature “t.”

“I vow to never partake in the celebrity online shenanigans,” she promised from backstage at a tour stop in Tacoma, Washington. “I vow to always tweet, and tweet again. Just remember I love you, and love yourselves.”

Queen Gaga also sent her well-wishes for her loyal subjects: “May you always have soft cuticles while tweeting” – and – “May you never have carpal tunnel.”
