Yesterday afternoon Justin's twitter account hit a milestone reaching the 4,000,000 followers mark and bumping him up to the 6th most followed account on Twitter. Yay!
Though Britney Spears, who is currently the most followed on Twitter, has 5,419,741 followers, her average number of new followers per day is only about 6,214. That is not even comparable to the number of new followers that Justin gets, a little over 20,000 per day. If things continue at this rate, expected Justin to take over as the King of Twitter in about 4 months, just before we ring in the 2011 new year.
This would make him the undisputed king of the internet (most searched, most viewed video on Youtube, and most followed on Twitter).
