Lady Gaga has left pop rival Britney Spears in her wake – she’s overtaken the Toxic hitmaker as the most followed celebrity on Twitter.
Spears was crowned queen of the microblogging site earlier this year when she beat once-reigning Ashton Kutcher, who was the first star to make it to the one million followers mark.

It was predicted earlier this week that Gaga would be the champion by the weekend – and she has now amassed a staggering 6.7 million online devotees. The number outstrips Spears by 9,000.

And as a thank you to her fans, the Poker Face sensation recorded a bizarre video in which she is dressed as a wand-waving fairy and brands herself the ‘Queen of Twitter’.

In the footage, she says, “This is Lady Gaga, queen of Twitter. Wanted to thank all of my beautiful little monsters for following me. Thank you for beginning my reign as Twitter queen. May you always have soft cuticles while tweeting. May you never have carpal tunnel. I vow to always tweet and tweet again.”
