Lady Gaga breaks Twitter record with 18 mn followers

Washington: Lady Gaga has set a record of sorts, by becoming the first person in the world to boast 18 million followers on

She has achieved the remarkable feat less than a month after her nearest social network rival Justin Bieber chalked up 16 million online fans.

The thrilled ‘Poker Face’ singer took to her microblogging website to announce the big news on Monday.

“Can’t believe I have 18,000,000 TwitterMonsters, really rad, was just a few years ago I had barely any,” she tweeted.
