There’s a new celebrity sitting high atop the Twitterverse. Katy Perry is the first person to reach 50 million followers on the social network.

According to E! News, the “Roar” singer roared past Justin Bieber in November when he had 46.47 million followers. Perry got a big boost in followers with her recent “Dark Horse” performance at the Grammys.

According to Twitaholic, the Top 5 Twitter accounts with the most followers are:

  1. Katy Perry, 50.2m
  2. Justin Bieber, 49.3m
  3. Barack Obama, 41.2m
  4. Lady Gaga, 41.0m
  5. Youtube, 39.0m

Her beau John Mayer recently rejoined Twitter after abandoning social media for the most part in 2010.

We can only dream of having so many followers on our own Twitter accounts. We tallied up our own Twitter followers to see who had the most.
