John Mayer Makes His Return to Twitter as Katy Perry is the First to Reach 50 Million Followers

Guess who is back on Twitter?

John Mayer made his return to Twitter after quitting the social network back in September of 2010, following some stupid comments he made in an interview with Playboy magazine in which he talked about intimate relations with former girlfriend Jessica Simpson and used the N-word.

When he deleted his former account, @JohnCMayer had 3.7 million Twitter followers.

As of late this afternoon he’s posted eight tweets since his return earlier today. Some of the gems being:





Speaking of Katy Perry. John’s girlfriend became the first person to reach 50 million followers on Twitter yesterday (January 30, 2014).

The singer overtook Justin Bieber as the most followed person in November last year, although he was the first to hit the 40 million mark in June 2013.

Katy Perry is ahead of the teenage pop star by 800,000.

Katy posted a little announcement on Twitter regarding John’s return as well.
