Tweets of joy!

Kim Kardashian now has 5 million-plus Twitter followers!

The star, 29, reached the microblogging milestone Monday night — and she wasn't at a hot celeb party or red carpet when it happened, either.

PHOTOS: How she's overshared on Twitter

"Last night I was glued to my laptop when I saw I was close to getting my five millionth follower on Twitter," she blogged.

"I couldn't believe it when it happened! Its such a mind blowing feeling to know so many of you are out there reading my tweets," she gushed.

"I can't believe it! I love you so much."

The single lady has another reason to celebrate as well. She and big sister Kourtney, 30, just nabbed another reality spinoff: Kourtney and Kim Take New York, set in the Big Apple, debuts January 2011.

Thanking her fans, she added, "Twitter is amazing!! It keeps me connected to you guys even when I'm on the go. It's like you are all right there with me. I love that I can ask your advice or your opinion on something and can read your responses straight away… it's just fab!"
