American musician, Katy Perry who is now promoting her album "Witness", seem to have everything now working out "for good" in her life, as she just broke Twitter record, by becoming the first user of the social media platform to reach 100 million followers.

Twitter congratulated Perry on reaching the milestone with a retrospective video of her tweets over the years.

YouGov found that they prioritised unrestricted trade over immigration controls by a margin of 64 to 19 per cent. Meanwhile, Labour said that the option of remaining a member of the customs union "should be left on the table".

Twitter's top five accounts are: @katyperry (100m followers), @justinbieber (96.7m), @BarackObama (90.8m) @taylorswift13 (85.1m) and @rihanna 74.1m. According to the Twitter counter, the other people who have made it to the #Top 100 accounts consist primarily of celebrities, singers, politicians, athletes, and news/media companies.

United States president Donald Trump is the most-followed current leader, in 33rd place with 32.4m followers.

Perry joined the site in February 2009 and has tweeted just over 8,500 times.

For Mr Obama and Mr Trump the figure dropped to about a third.
