Twitter honored the “Swish Swish” singer, 32, with a celebratory post. “Today, we #WITNESS history. Congratulations @katyperry, the first to reach 100 million followers! #LoveKaty,” the official Twitter account wrote.
“Thank you, @Twitter, for always giving me an opportunity to have a voice! #LoveKaty,” the songstress responded.
Perry, who joined Twitter in 2009 while touring in Germany, rose to fame after releasing her 2008 single “I Kissed a Girl.”
“Just got into Berlin… feeling better thank you, have my vicks inhaler by my side… and P.S. I TWITTER! GAH. Such a follower!” Perry’s first tweet, posted on February 20, 2009, read.
Over the years, the songwriter has graced the social media platform with sweet — and sassy! — tweets.
While at Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival that same year, the “Roar” singer tweeted her disproval of the season's trend. “If I see a flower garland in your hair this weekend our friendship is over #Coachella,” she wrote.
Perry may lead the Twitter charge for now, but Justin Bieber comes in a close second with 96.7 million devotees.
