The irritating teen singer, who tweets from Twitter.com/justinbieber, thanked his “Beliebers” after reaching the milestone last night (July 13).
“I LOVE YOU ALL!! THANK YOU….tonight was already a fun great night and now it is even better. THANK U THANK U THANK U,” he wrote.
However, the 17-year-old can console himself with the fact he has almost two million more followers than his nearest Twitter rival, US president Barack Obama.
Earlier this week, Bieber’s social media status was eclipsed by his girlfriend Selena Gomez, who stormed to the top of the Social 50 Chart.
