A week before her latest record 'Born This Way' hits shelves and, if the popularity if its first three singles is any indication, surely flies to the top of the charts, Lady Gaga hit a different kind of milestone. The flamboyant pop star became the first Twitter user to garner 10 million followers. She beat fellow pop tour de force Justin Bieber to the coveted mark.

Lady Gaga and the tween heartthrob have been embroiled in an unofficial social networking battle since last year, but Bieber has consistently fallen just short of the Mother Monster. Although his video for 'Baby' is the most watched YouTube video of all time, Gaga beat him to 1 billion total views on the site, just a day before he hit the benchmark. Meanwhile, with his approximately 27 million Facebook followers, he trails far behind her legion of over 34 million fans.
