Mashable reports that the two are neck-and-neck in the race to hit 5 million followers.
As you may already know (or if you didn't know,) Ashton Kutcher was the first Twitter user to reach 1 million followers back in 2009 after battling it out with CNN for the top spot.
A year later, Ashton faces another toughy as Britney's worldwide legion of die-hard-fans battle it out with the mighty Kutch-Army for Twitter's throne. So the question here is, can King Kutch be overthrown? Can he retain his title? Who will make it to 5 Million followers first?
Britney's worldwide popularity makes her a much tougher opponent, so I think it will be pretty tough for Kutcher to remain Twitter's King. But I could be wrong, Ashton may already have something up his sleeve, he did it against CNN, why won't he against Spears? If he has, he better hurry, as he is is only ahead by 100,000 followers, which to you may seem like a lot but you'll be surprised as to how quickly these numbers add up on the Twittersphere. As I write this post (9:05am - May 17), Britney has 4,892,129 followers, whilst Ashton is ahead with 4,901,115.
Let the battle begin!
