Kim Kardashian Twitter War: 'Mad Man' Star Takes On Kim

Report By: Nina Rai

Los Angeles, 16 March, 2012

The curvy lady, who first skyrocketed to fame on television reality show, probably would never have imagined that one day she would be more popular than the President of America. Well, Kim Kardashian has gone and done the impossible by overtaking even Barack Obama on Twitter. She has gained 5 million more followers than the supposedly most powerful man on this planet.

On getting the news, the voluptuous reality diva drooled over her twitter feed - 'OMG 14 million! I can't believe it! Thank you guys so much!!!!!!.' Then being the person she is, without wasting much time, Kim even went on to post a series of her own pictures where she is seen throwing kisses at her fans, in sheer joy. She now stands 7th on the Twitter follower ranking with an astounding 14,000,515 followers on Twitter.

The top six celebrities preceding her are Lady Gaga with over 20 million followers, Justin Bieber has over 18 million followers, Katy Perry has over 16 million followers. Rihanna and Shakira are in a tie with both having around 15 million followers, while in the 5th spot is Britney Spears.

The beautiful Kim Kardashian having over 14 million twitter followers is truly remarkable an achievement considering she is ahead of such stalwarts like the Dalai Lama, Oprah and Bill Gates. She has overtaken President Obama who stands at number 8 on the Twitter list with little more than 13 million followers. While Republican frontrunner Mitt Romney, has only a miniscule 340,000 followers on twitter.

Meanwhile, Kim probably not content with having to restrict herself to just 140 characters in Twitter later posted her thoughts on her website more elaborately and thanked her fans too. Delighted to bits, she gushed 'I can’t believe I just passed 14 million followers on Twitter! This is crazy! Thank you all so much… I love you guys!'

Further she wrote 'I wanted to give you all a shout out, but it’s impossible to list you all, so I grabbed as many of my Twitter dolls as I could and put you in a gallery!!' and added 'Sorry if you aren’t there, but I love you all! (And more kisses for you at the end of the gallery, lol!) Xo.'

Well, congratulations to Kim Kardashian. Enjoy this moment of fame.
