(NEW YORK) -- When we last checked, Lady Gaga had 7,956,746 Twitter followers, but before the week is out, she's going to hit the magic number: eight million followers, which will make her the most popular person on Twitter.
MediaBistro.com reports that according to TwitterCounter, it'll take five days or less for Gaga to reach the milestone. The person in the number two spot when it comes to Twitter followers, Justin Bieber, has just under seven million.
Last week, Gaga proved the power of her followers when she asked them to make a certain phrase a trending topic, and in about 10 minutes it became the number one trending topic worldwide on the social networking site.
