New York: Katy Perry’s fans on Friday got to “witness” the singer make history, as the ‘Roar’ singer has become the first person to reach 100 million followers.

The development comes as a good time for the singer who is making the rounds in a public relations tours for her new album, “Witness”, reports CNN.

Perry has always taken to Twitter to communicate with her fans and maintains a level of ‘personal touch’.

However, she has also sparked some major conversations on the social media platform, most prominently about her much discussed 2015 Super Bowl Halftime performance in which #LeftShark became a worldwide trending topic after one of her backup dancers, dressed as a shark, appeared to be out of step.

Meanwhile, singer Justin Bieber is not far behind with almost 97 million followers.
