Britney Spears Ousts Ashton Kutcher as Twitter King

by at . Comments

Last year, Ashton Kutcher beat CNN to a million followers on Twitter, proclaiming himself the King of All Social Media. Okay, the first part is true anyway?

Since then, he's enjoyed his perch as the undisputed leader in total fans on the micro-blogging site ... until today, when Britney Spears surpassed him.

Yup, Brit has opened up a 4,950,699-4,944,227 lead. Ashton's response? He does not care. Fittingly, he Twittered his response to playing second fiddle:

He wrote: "2nd most pop Q 'What do U think about Brittney having more followers than u?' Answer 'I don't care. Aren't u suppose 2B a movie reporter?'"

Ashton Twittered this during a press junket for his and Katherine Heigl's new movie Killers. Seems like he's taking it in stride ... or is secretly bitter.

As for Britney, she celebrated her reign by actually Twittering: "WOW!!!!! #1 on Twitter! Thank you! Tweet me some questions this morning! xoxo -Brit"

This is surprising and yet not. Surprising because Britney's Twitter is boring and rarely written by her. It's usually her manager writing some BS story.

It's not surprising in the sense that Britney Spears is a bigger star than Ashton Kutcher, and one of the most famous people alive ... for better or worse.

Either way, if we were Britney, we wouldn't get too comfortable. There are other threats to the crown who aren't even on Twitter yet. One word: Bieber.

P.S. Please follow THG on Twitter! We have slightly fewer followers than Britney Spears ... but you can bring our celebrity gossip site one person closer.

The one thing that both of these celebrities have in common is that they are both very annoying. I guess in the world of Twitter that the more annoying you are the more followers you get.

Britney Spears Quotes

I miss it here so much! I love it so much! It makes me it's kinda like bittersweet coming here because I used to live here for two years. And when I come here, it's like, man, I wish I had my apartment here still.
