Justin Bieber Reaches 11 Million Followers on Twitter

Fans celebrate the pop superstar's social media milestone.

Published July 15, 2011

Teen pop icon Justin Bieber recently joined Lady Gaga in an exclusive Twitter club. Bieber reached over 11 million followers on Twitter this week. To further show their support, his fans made “Congrats Justin” a trending topic on the social networking site.

@justinbieber our family is getting BIGGER #11millionBeliebers so proud to be part of it, I'll always support you ;) Congrats Justin,” one fan lauded.


Another fan wrote, “It's crazy that @justinbieber has more followers than he had people in his home town, #11millionbeliebers #DREAMBIG.”

Not only does Bieber have millions of teenage girls following his every move, but he also has support from big-time celebrities. Among his famed supporters are Usher, Chris Brown and his dear friend Diggy Simmons, who Biebs recently performed with during the California stop on 106 & Park’s  Closer to My Dreams tour.

The young phenom even had support from rap star Kanye West, who he recently defended in an interview with XXL Magazine; something that’s pretty impressive considering the fact that Ye no longer follows anyone.

Upon realizing the magnitude of his support system, Bieber took the time to extend his gratitude on Twitter. “#11MillionBeliebers! I LOVE YOU ALL!! THANK YOU....tonight was already a fun great night and now it is even better. THANK U THANK U THANK U,” he tweeted.
