Top tweeters: Kim K has 9 million followers

Reality star Kim Kardashian has just gained over 9 million followers on Twitter.

After amassing that staggering number,  Kim, 30, tweeted her reaction: “OMGGGGG I just saw I reached 9 MILLION followers!!!!!! I am so speechless! YOU truly are my world and mean everything to me! I LOVE YOU!”

The secret to her popularity? Apparently it’s scintillating revelations like “I hate cilantro with a passion!” and, “Do u brush your teeth before u take the red eye flight? I always do in the bathroom. Otherwise its like falling alseep w-out brushing! Yuck.”

Pepper those gems with some Kardashian product promotion and you’ve got yourself one popular feed!

The only celebrities with more followers than Kim are Lady Gaga with 12.7 million followers, Justin Bieber with 11.9 and Katy Perry with 9.2. Oh yeah, and President Barack Obama has 9.7 million.

Britney Spears (9 million followers), Shakira (7.7), Taylor Swift (7.5), Ashton Kutcher (7.4), and Ellen DeGeneres (7.3) round out the top 10 on the Twitter Counter.

The "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" star is described on her Twitter bio as a “business woman, exec producer, fashion designer, perfumista.” Kardashian is a week away from marrying NBA player Kris Humphries.

    the top 10 list is a great illustration that in the US our 'celebrity culture' is out of control. Only an otherwise culturally vacant country would see this gap filled by the worshipping of largely worthless people.

    Kim is pretty but she reminds me of 1 of those Bratz dolls, lol! Also, alot of women have bubble butts, Jessica Biel, Britney Spears, Beyonce', Shakira, Me, but for some reason her butt has butt appreciation monopoly! Not fair! But apparently we are her world & mean Everything to her, so I suppose that's the consolation price! Naah, I'd rather have men appreciating my righteous bootay!! 8-D
