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?

    @Swagger: Most pop artists who sing live still have their songs playing in the background because they’re usually dancing as well and need moments to catch their breath.

  • BeEeee

    C’om on you guys are not exceptional.. U always go to talk sh—-t abt others artists… And we are here to pay back ! to your SHITNEY

  • yo sista

    Wannabe haters are so annoying! So not fierce at all. I miss the original trolls, new wannabes trolls are lame and uneducated. I’m outta here! Britney you ROCK!

  • Swagger

    @Jasmine: No they do lip sync! Stop talking as if she’s the ONLY one who does it. HATER

    She does but as easy for you to ASSUME she lips, it’s hard to admit others do. You’re so lame. SCREAMS A HATER

  • Shitney

    Who cares? a LIP SYNC !!! from the beginning of her career.

  • Jasmine

    @Swagger: …Stop talking as if you’re 12 years old. If she does sing live, post on here with a link of one. Go ahead, I’ll wait.

  • Mel

    BRITNEY IS QUEEN OF TRAILER TRASH! HER FANS ARE MENTALLY DISABLED. HAVING ALL OF THOSE FOLLOWERS ISN’T GOING TO CHANGE THE FACT THAT SHE IS A TALENTLESS MENTALLY CHALLENGED TRAINWRECK.

  • Babyonemoretime…

    @[retard] Mel- aww u mad? at least she’s the most successful recording artist of the past 2 decades and keeps having hits with everything she does…so why don’t u go back to buying floptina’s or flopga’s albums and STFU…cuz whatever anybody says, it will not erase the impact and legendary status she has around the world!
    k bye ingnorantcunt!

  • floptina,flopgasuck

    @Mel: aww u mad? well at least britney is a legendary icon in the music industry with success in everything she does up until now, 11 yrs later…so why dont u go back to buying floptina’s or flopga’s snooze fest of albums and STFU!!!

    @Mo-Nique: Clearly you don’t have the intellectual capacity to understand that opinions and experiences can differ greatly from your own.
    @yo sista: If you don’t give a f-ck what I have to say, simply don’t respond to me. Bright idea, no?
    Children…”SMH”

  • Tee.

    Love Britney, and I’m happy for her. But really? this is news?

  • d

    Oh yea my a$$ that narcissist doesn’t care. He’s all save the world now. But what is he actually doing? He’s obsessed with himself and his twitter. Not long ago, he was pulling psychopathic pranks on people, that could have left a few in the hospital from the anxiety and panic he was putting them in. A psycho is as a psycho does. He is no enlightened human being. And no amount of Kabbalah is gonna change that.
