According to Yahoo, the United States president had more Facebook friends than Lady Gaga as of last week, although a Michael Jackson remembrance page surpasses both with over 14 million friends so far. A similar trend could be observed on Twitter where Lady Gaga’s Twitter account, @ladygaga, has attracted more followers than Obama’s @barackobama account.

While the @barackobama account has around 4.42 million followers, the @ladygaga account has about 4.72 million although the title for the largest number of Twitter followers belongs to Britney Spears @britneyspears account with around 5.24 million followers.

The United States president’s Twitter and Facebook accounts are managed by his political arm, Organizing for America.

    Wow it’s amazing, i don’t know how they manage to approve the huge friendship requests coming daily to their profiles. There must be an employee assigned to approve the new friend requests i think.

      Absolutely. ‘Organizing for America’ currently manages that of the US president.
