Justin Bieber may have a gigantic fanbase, but he’s no longer Twitter’s most popular celebrity. With over 46,477,000 followers at the time of this writing, Katy Perry has taken the lead. Both stars are still adding new followers every minute, but Perry seems to be rising faster. She’s presently maintaining 2,000 more followers than Bieber, and barring a backlash, could keep on climbing higher.
