It looks like the battle of pop stars continues as Justin Bieber has overthrown Lady Gaga as the most popular celebrity on Twitter.

The “Poker Face” hitmaker broke a number of records as she clocked up millions of followers on the social networking website, but the Biebs has always been hot on her heels and he has now officially overtaken Gaga to rack up the most online followers. 

Both stars have been hovering around the 33 million mark, but Bieber overtook his rival by several thousand on Monday night.  Gaga acknowledged Bieber’s growing Twitter fan base earlier this month, posting this message on his page: “So proud of Justin Bieber and all the Beliebers! I’m only happy to see your fans growing in size, you all deserve it!”  Gaga has held the title of ‘most followed’ user on the website since she overtook previous Twitter queen Britney Spears in 2010.

Bieber rose to fame as a baby-faced pop star singing love songs such as Baby after being discovered on YouTube in 2008. He has released two No. 1 albums in the past 18 months — the holiday-themed Under the Mistletoe and Believe.  Bieber was named by Forbes magazine in 2012 as the third-most powerful celebrity in the world and his huge following on Twitter was cited as a reason why marketers need to take notice of the 140-character micro-blogging site.  The singer and her teenage rival are followed by Katy Perry in third place, while another singer, Rihanna, is in fourth ahead of President Barack Obama.  What do you think of this?
