With some help from her "little monsters," Lady Gaga has dethroned Britney Spears on Twitter.

The Bad Romance singer surpassed the reigning Twitter queen momentarily on Friday, but that same afternoon, Spears received more followers and secured her spot at the top – temporarily. By Saturday morning, Lady Gaga had regained her position, besting Spears by approximately 6,000 followers.

The pop star is also the most popular on Facebook with more than 16 million friends – more than Spears and President Obama.
