You know Twitter has made it into the mainstream when celebrities rush to join the micro-blogging service. But who is the most popular Twitter-er of them all? Among these celebrity tweeters, pop singer Lady Gaga (@LadyGaga) rules the Twitterverse with roughly 12 million followers as of summer 2011. This pop princess took over the top spot from another, besting Britney Spears (@BritneySpears) as the most popular celebrity on Twitter.

While President Barack Obama (@BarackObama) comes in third for followers, many other top Twitterers are fellow singers with the likes of Justin Bieber (@JustinBieber), Katy Perry (@KatyPerry) and Shakira (@Shakira) all in the top 10. Actors, as well as people famous for being famous, like Kim Kardashian (@KimKardashian) are also up there such as former top Twitterer Ashton Kutcher (@aplusk).
