Britney Spears Dethrones Twitter King Ashton Kutcher

Britney Spears Dethrones Twitter King Ashton Kutcher

There’s a new Twitter queen in town!

One year ago, Ashton Kutcher beat CNN in the race to 1 million followers and continued to have the most followers in the Twitterverse. Until now!

Britney Spears has slowly been creeping up on Ashton‘s Twitter following and at the time of this posting, Britney has 4,939,603 followers and Ashton has 4,937,927.

Of note: Britney doesn’t tweet herself. Her team does it for her and her manager Adam Leber chimes in semi-often even though he has an account of his own. Brit also tweets an average of 1.7 tweets/day while Ashton averages 11.2.

Today, Ashton has been at a press junket for his new movie called Killers. He tweeted, “Second most pop question [has been] ‘What do you think about Britney having more followers than you?’ Answer: ‘I don’t care. Aren’t you suppose to be a movie reporter?’”

Britney can be followed @BritneySpears while Ashton can be found at @aplusk!

DO YOU THINK Britney will continue her reign as Twitter Queen?

    @Hannah “REAL TALK” R.: Britney was NEVER an attention w.h0re! It’s simple she doesn’t need that, she’s a widely recognized SUPERSTAR and an A-Listed from the beginning of her career up until now. NUFF SAID

  • BeEeee

  • yo sista

    @BeEeee: Desperate much? *rolls eyes* Pathetic gaga fans are so desperate!

  • Jasmine

    I don’t understand why anyone would want to follow her on twitter when she doesn’t even post on it HERSELF. She can’t tweet, and she doesn’t sing live (probably because she CAN’T). How does she even have fans? She clearly doesn’t give a rat’s ass about them.

  • yo sista

    @Jasmine: She does tweet don’t get it twisted please. She does wish her fans good stuff occasionally, on mothers day for instance. She did sing live during her last concert, Everytime & You oughta Know, the rest she had lots of back tracks help so yeah it was semi-lipped but it was AMAZING, the show was BEYOND amazing, don’t speak about something you have no idea of please. Go and see her and then judge.

  • Jslin

    Thats your idea of news?

  • BeEeee

    Sorry, A Legend, Icon? Who said that? who recognize?

    If she is a legend who can;t sing, who can’t write her own songs –> then i can agree ..lmao
    She is just a product in the music industry. I bet she is going to be forgotten sooon

  • Jasmine

    @yo sista: The only thing she can do is dance. She can’t sing live, and I don’t need to waste my time or money on that. I’ve talked to enough people who have been moronic enough to waste theirs and go on to regret it because she can’t do sh-t. She should be someone’s backup dancer. That’s more suitable to her talents. And I used to be a fan, fyi, back when I was a kid and didn’t know any better. Now I’d rather spend my time and money on artists with actual talent and integrity. You should try it some time.

  • Swagger

    @Jasmine: she does tweet but only on special occasions, her tweeter is for professional reasons. shez an a listed, she won’t tweet about her private life DUH. She has fans because she’s sweet, talented (go to youtube and you’ll find plenty of videos where she’s singing live) and she’s pretty.
    Plus someone like lady gaga who gets all that credit for being a “live singer” lip synchs ALOT, so really the whole britney is a lip syncher is a “myth” when you think about it. It’s like MJ being a pedo or idk! Britney does lip synch but so does EVERY single artist out there nowadays she’s just the only one being unfairly called out for it.

  • BeEeee

    Ahh she had been already forgotten… That’s why her team is trying to make a new album for her… lollllzzzz

  • Swagger

    @BeEeee: THE ONLY PRODUCT IZ THE B§TCH U WORSHIP FLOPGA LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO NOBODY CARES ABOUT THAT HO ON TWITTER LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOOO DOES SHE EVEN HAVE ONE MILLION FOLLOWER? LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOO

  • yo sista

    @Jasmine: No honey, not trying to come off being b!tchy but sound like a hater to me. I went to a Britney concert FOUR times and i’ve never seen much excitement on one room before! even after the show was over everyone was blown away so ya i doubt anyone would go being “disappointed” from a show like that. And i went to see lots of other artists from Beyonce to Pink and Britney was my favorite. She sure can’t sing like Whitney but she’s britney and that’s what she got, if you don’t like it then don’t go as simple as that. IMO she has enough talent for me to go and see her. She’s amazing and i don’t give a Fùùk what anyone has to say.

  • BeEeee

    her FANS are easy to maddd..LMAO…. coz they are scared of GAGA

    GAGA team !!!

  • Mo-Nique

    @Jasmine: STFU DONT PLAY THE “I ONCE WAS A FAN” CARD ITZ GETTING OLD! UR OBVIOUSLY A HATER STFU AND TO THA LEFT TO THA LEFT

  • Mo-Nique

    @BeEeee: you’re the one here talking about your tranny on a britney post so you’re the one ‘scared’ pathetic troll

  • Mo-Nique

    @Jasmine: Oh yeah she can do lots of ‘sh!ts’ you dumb hater. I went to see her on her dream within a dream tour and she danced her ass off and sang LIVE most of the time. She also writes and produces her own stuff, because Britney isnt gaga who mentions at every damn interview the songs she wrote. please do your researches before you open your hating mouth and talk sh!t.
