Here's Who Beat J Biebs And T Swift As The Most Followed Person On Twitter
Ahh, Twitter. There's no place I'd rather spend 12 hours of my day.
Over the years, I developed a very deep, personal connection to the platform. I love using it as a way to tweet about issues that matter to me like eating pizza and talking to cute boys. LOL, kidding. Maybe.
Many people go to Twitter to debate more serious topics or catch up on the latest celebrity gossip.
This past year, I feel like I've been more engaged with Twitter than ever before. It's where I get most of my information about the world, to be honest.
Twitter recently released its annual Year in Review where it looks back on the hot topics and tweets of the past 365 days.
Twitter calculated its top 10 most followed users, and the results may surprise you. I, personally, was pretty shocked to not see my own name in there, but whatever. There's always next year.
Check out the top users on Twitter with the largest followings, starting with number 10 and making your way down to number one.
OH, and you'll never guess who beat out Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift for the number one spot.

YES, it's true. Your girl Katy Perry racked up the most followers for the 2015 year, fuzzy socks and all. Sorry, T Swift, looks like your squad isn't enough in the Twitter world. Tweeters are all about this California Gurl.
