Britney Spears Is The New Queen Of Twitter; Pop Tart Bounces Ashton Kutcher As World’s Most Followed Tweeter

Park it, Ashton! There’s a new Sheriff raising through the social ranks of Twitter, and professional prankster Ashton Kutcher doesn’t seem too pleased about his Tweetin’ crown being snatched by a pop princess.

Over the weekend, Britney Spears soared past Ashton in Twitter followers, netting nearly 10,000 more devotees than Mr. Demi Moore — one of the world’s first celebrity Tweeters and the first person to attract 1 million followers on the site. At last count, Britney had 4,951,801 followers to Ashton’s 4,942,273.

Spears only sporadically posts updates to her Twitter, and Ashton — an avid updater — hinted that he wasn’t happy at being asked about his fall from social networking grace at a recent press junket for his new movie with Katherine Heigl, Killers.

“2nd most pop Q ‘What do U think about Brittney [sic] having more followers than u?'” Ashton angrily Tweeted early Sunday evening. “Answer ‘I don’t care. Aren’t u suppose 2B a movie reporter?'”
