Lady Gaga Becomes First Twitter User With 25 Million Followers
Pop superstar Lady Gaga has reached another huge milestone in her career, becoming the first user to hit 25 million followers on Twitter. According to reports, the "Marry The Night" singer took only 88 days to move from 20 to 25 million followers.
Gaga has widened the gap between her and Twitter’s second-most popular user, Justin Bieber, 18, and is now some 2.5 million ahead.
What does the 26-year-old singer think of her latest accomplishment?
She took to Twitter (of course), writing: "#25milliontweetymonsters wow! I'm officially feeling like the luckiest girl in the world today."

It's not known if the mashup is a direct dig, but Madonna told Nightline anchor Cynthia McFadden in a January interview that Gaga’s song felt “reductive” of “Express Yourself.” Watch the video below to learn more.
