In what is surely a sign of the coming apocalypse, Justin Bieber has become the most-followed person on Twitter. He usurped the "title" from Lady Gaga, who is supportive of his "achievement." At this writing, Justin Bieber has 33,348,789 Twitter followers.
While he has taken the lead, there's only a small gap between them. Bieber is only ahead by around 7,000 followers, so only time will tell if Gaga's famed "Little Monsters" will step up and reclaim the leading spot.
Lady Gaga took to Twitter to congratulate the Biebs:
So proud of @justinbieber and all the Beliebers! I'm only happy to see your fans growing in size, you all deserve it! Monsters support you!
