At some point in the last 24 hours, Lady Gaga became the first person to reach 20 million Twitter followers. The New York pop star now has 2 million more followers than the next-most-followed person on the site, Justin Bieber, which makes her almost incomprehensibly famous.

Gaga uses her Twitter to give romantic advice ("Happy Valentine's Day everyone. If you have someone special, give them a kiss. If you don't, make a voodoo doll of your ex and cast spells.") and to encourage readers to check out Bruce Springsteen ("Did ANYONE see SPRINGSTEEN on Fallon last night!!! Buy his new album. It is so genius its hard to even believe. Just mind-blowing passion.").

According to statistics from, it seems like Lady Gaga won't be overtaken at the top spot anytime soon. What do you think of this development? Does Lady Gaga deserve to be the most followed person on earth?
