Katy Perry is first person with 100M followers on Twitter

Katy Perry is first person with 100M followers on Twitter

But the big issue: Katy Perry doesn't REALLY have 100 million followers because Katy Perry's account is plagued by a common problem on Twitter - bots.

"I didn't kill her", she said of the "Teenage Dream"-era Perry, "because I love her, and she is exactly what I had to do then".

She just became the "most followed person on Twitter," as well as the first individual ever to garner over 100 million followers.

"#LoveKaty", Twitter posted on its official page.

Congratulating the singer, the micro-blogging website posted a video compilation of her tweets since she joined in 2009 along with a message saying "Today, we #WITNESS history".

Katy Perry has a reason to celebrate, and it has nothing to do with her newly released album, Witness.

Katy Perry attends The Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute benefit gala, May 1, 2017, in NY.

Twitter celebrated the major milestone with a video of some of her tweets over the years.

"All the awards shows are fake, and all the awards that I've won are fake", she said.

Trump started Snapchatting in January, but that platform doesn't list how many followers a user has.

She said: "I would say 90 per cent of my Tweets, I've just made them up and you can tell because many of them are misspelled and full of typos".

When asked by the site if he would be writing a song to defend the popstar, Ed replied; "I don't think she needs that at all".
