Last month [URL="http://www.daniweb.com/news/story297374.html"]DaniWeb reported how Justin Bieber beat Lady Gaga to become the King of YouTube[/URL] with the most viewed video ever. Gaga has proven harder to tackle on Twitter where the quirky pop star has just knocked Britney Spears off the top spot in terms of the most followers. But what can you learn from this battle of the celebrities and can you convert that knowledge into hits for your online business?

Well thank goodness that silliness is all over: Ashton Kutcher is the first user to hit a million followers on Twitter. The actor come TV presenter narrowly beat off the challenge from the frontrunner, the CNN account, not least because of a big publicity drive which included the likes of promising to donate 10,000 mosquito nets to the Malaria No More charity should he be successful, and video game publisher EA promising whoever happened to be Kutcher follower number one million a role in a new version of The Sims game. Kutcher ended up beating CNN to the magic million …
