Earlier this morning we reported that Lady Gaga had moved above the 11 million follower mark on Twitter, after being the first person to reach 10 million followers last month.
How times have changed. Back in April 2009, Ashton Kutcher was the first user on the network to boast a million followers. Beyoncé Knowles passed that tally without writing a single tweet, and Charlie Sheen needed just 25 hours to secure his record.
Fast-forward to the present. Right now, and with golf superstar Tiger Woods and British comedian Jimmy Carr as the newest recruits, there are 436 members in Twitter’s one million club, and many more who are right on the fringe.
