The official Twitter account announced the milestone in a tweet on Friday, "Today, we #WITNESS history. Congratulations @KatyPerry, the first to reach 100 million followers! #LoveKaty."

However, there’s some controversy about the number. The TwitterAudit service says only one-third of Katy Perry’s followers are authentic.

TwitterAudit believes every celebrity account has inflated follower numbers. Either bogus bots or fake accounts make up a sizeable fraction of followers. According to TwitterAudit, Katy’s rival Taylor Swift has the most legitimate followers with 74 million. (Cosmo)

  • Top five Twitter accounts, according to TwitterAudit are Taylor Swift, Barack Obama (71 million), Ellen DeGeneres (50 million), Kim Kardashian (45 million) and Ariana Grande (40 million).
