Move over Lady Gaga, you’re not the only member of the 10 million Twitter follower club.

With a strong push from his fans, Justin Bieber finally surpassed the impressive 10 million mark on Twitter.

Although he has a huge following, Bieber’s fans weren’t able to beat Gaga’s “Little Monsters” to the top, but who knows how many followers Bieber will have when all is said and done.

Earlier this month Lady Gaga became the first person to have 10 million people following her on the social network site.

When she finally reached that huge milestone she sent out a tweet that read: “10MillionMonsters! I’m speechless, we did it! Its an illness how I love you. Leaving London smiling.”

Think Bieber’s Twitter following doesn’t mean anything in the entertainment world?

The magazine credited the singer for gaining a huge following, especially on Facebook and Twitter.

“Gaga is there not just because of the $90 million she earned with a monster tour, but also because of her 32 million Facebook fans and 10 million Twitter followers–aka Little Monsters–who helped move 1 million digital downloads of her recent single “Born This Way” in only five days,” says Forbes.

Early Saturday morning, Bieber’s Twitter followers were pushing for a big day, with the term “Justin and Beliebers” going strong on the social network site all day.

We’re still waiting on Bieber to address his fans on Twitter.

Although he’s only 17, the pop-singer already has accomplished a lot in his young career.

Last week, Bieber won the award for Best New Artist at the Billboard Music Awards, and is currently dating another teen star–Selena Gomez.

The Beebs–who was famously discovered on YouTube–is listed as one of the top YouTube stars of the decade.
