Fans go to war

By On

Fans of Justin Bieber and Lady GaGa have gone to war on Twitter - as the former appears to have overtaken the latter as the site's most popular user.

At time of writing, the pair's pages put Bieber three thousand behind GaGa - but Twitter Counter says that he has in fact pulled 1,000 ahead. The numbers on their profiles are set to update in due course.

GaGa overtook Britney Spears back in 2010, and the 'Toxic' singer now occupies 6th place with 23.4 million followers.

The current stats, according to TwitterCounter

Ahead of her, Barack Obama has 26.135 million, Rihanna has 27.937 million and Katy Perry has 31.466 million.

The Top 10 is completed by Taylor Swift in seventh (23.176 million), YouTube in eighth (22.207 million), Shakira in ninth (19.375 million) and Kim Kardashian in tenth (17.230 million).

Fans of GaGa's have trended "Justin Is The Queen Of Twitter" as a tongue-in-cheek swipe at him, whereas Beliebers have opted for "#JustinIsTheKingOfTwitter".
