Justin Bieber Hits Record-Breaking 40 Million Twitter Followers

Justin Bieber

Canadian pop sensation Justin Bieber passed up Lady Gaga in sheer number of Twitter followers at the beginning of this year, but he didn’t stop there. The Biebs is now sitting just over 40,000,000 followers, a definite first for Twitter and a high bar for other celebs.

It doesn’t seem like it was all that long ago that a fresh-faced young Biebs was only at a mere 40 followers, something he himself was quick to note in a follow-up tweet:

Expressing gratitude to his fans, Bieber kick-started the hashtag #40Millionstrong which was quickly pushed to trending status by his dedicated fanbase.

Pretty much the only thing left for Justin Bieber to do is become a literal religion.

Congrats to Justin Bieber from Social News Daily! Stay out of trouble, kid.
