WOW: Katy Perry becomes the first person in the world to reach 100M Twitter followers

Pop star Katy Perry made social media history Friday, by becoming the first person in the world to reach 100M Twitter followers.

Twitter recognized the Chained to the Rhythm singer’s accomplishment Friday by posting a video montage containing some of her tweets. Perry, who broke onto the music scene with her 2008 single I Kissed A Girl, joined Twitter in 2009 and has sent out about 8,500 messages since.

“Thank you @Twitter, for always giving me an opportunity to have a voice!” the singer-songwriter tweeted Friday in response.
