If you tweet, then you’re likely to be familiar with the 2009 Twitter Wars between Ashton & Oprah. As with any competition, there’s the race to the top, followed by the race to stay on top.
When we began working on this list of Top Tweeters, Britney was in the lead and, by the time we were ready to publish, Lady Gaga had risen to #1 position. So, rather than rank these tweeters by their shifting number of followers, we’ve provided a list of recent top 20 tweeters. If you want to know who’s #1 right this second, just check with Twitaholic.
One thing we know for sure is this: if you’re planning a campus visit to any of the schools listed below, the list of questions you ask on your college tour may change now that you know where some of these celebs attended college.
