Twitter has revealed that Katy Perry is the most followed person on Twitter, amassing over 90 million followers.

The artist is the first user to reach the milestone, leaving the likes of Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift and even Barack Obama in her wake.

Twitter announced the feat yesterday, writing: “It’s party time, @katyperry! With 90 million on the guest list, we’re gonna need a really big dance floor.”

According to a release from Twitter announcing hte landmark, the top six expressions used to refer to Katy by her KatyCats in tweets are: [my] queen, beautiful, [the] best, better [than], amazing and [my] spirit animal.

Her six most retweeted tweets include references to One Direction, Justin Bieber, Demi Lovato and an exchange with Niall Horan.

On May 31, Perry had her Twitter account hacked, which featured a new song as part of the hack. Perry’s account began posting a series of abusive tweets to followers. The hacker then posted a Soundcloud link to a since deleted song, ‘Witness’, claiming it was by Perry.

‘Witness’ was hosted on a Soundcloud page known for featuring bootleg remixes, under the username Slut. However, while ‘Witness’ could potentially have been a new ballad written for Perry the singer on the track didn’t sound like Perry herself.
