Pop Star Katy Perry just recently rounded off a clean 50 million followers on Twitter, beating Justin Bieber to the social media milestone who is sitting pretty at about 49.2 million.
One thing to consider when thinking about this accomplishment is that Twitter does remove fake, spam or interactive accounts when displaying the overall tally of followers. A "fake follower check" on StatusPeople.com reports that 34% of Katy Perry's followers are fake. An impressive number, nonetheless. Below is the current top ten "most-followed" Twitter users:
1. Katy Perry (@KatyPerry): 50 million followers
