Okay, so nobody really cares, but @ladygaga has usurped @britneyspears as Twitter’s most popular user, with some 5,736,127 followers.

Gaga even had a celebrative message about her new position as the ‘Queen of Twitter’ for her fans:

“This is Lady Gaga, queen of Twitter. I wanted to thank all of my beautiful little monsters for following me. Thank you for beginning my reign as Twitter queen. May you always have soft cuticles while tweeting. May you never have carpal tunnel. … I vow to always tweet and tweet again.”

In the scheme of things, it seems fair enough. Gaga is arguably the hottest celebrity on the planet, and Britney… isn’t. Yeah, okay, you don’t care, but almost six million people do. That’s a lot of swing. Not forgetting, of course, the 11+ million fans she also has on Facebook.

What price former #1 Ashton Kutcher (@aplusk) being outside of the top 10, and maybe even the top 20, in a year’s time?
