In one fell swoop, Lady Gaga is taking over the Internet.

Gaga is the most famous living celebrity on Facebook. For a while, she had the most-watched video on YouTube, only to be overtaken by, of course, Justin Bieber. Now, Lady Gaga is the proud owner of the most-followed account on Twitter.

As of August 23, Gaga has 5,740,281 followers on Twitter, beating Britney Spears‘ total of 5,708,176. To thank her followers, Gaga shot a video proclaiming herself “Tween.” We’re guessing she’s not a preteen, but a Twitter queen — either way, her video is certainly eccentric. (via MTV)
