Katy Perry has become the first person to reach 100 million followers on Twitter, Entertainment Weekly reported Friday.

The "Swish Swish" singer further added that part of the reason why she had "oversexualised" herself in previous iterations of her public image was because she was, in reality, always "scared of intimacy".

According to Page Six, Perry first joined the social media platform in February 2009, hitting 50 million followers just three years later.

Tech drags Wall St lower; financials buoy Dow
August-dated gold futures fell $21.30, or 1.7%, to settle at $1,254.60 an ounce. Kroger Co (KR) was the top decliner on the S&P 500, falling by almost 12%.

Twitter celebrated Perry's achievement with a video showcasing some of her most read and retweeted posts.

It is also good timing for the singer who is making the rounds in a public relations blitz for her new album, "Witness". "She's starting to look very petty and Taylor doesn't want to sink down to that level, she wants nothing but love and positivity in her life right now". "And I know that sometimes it feels publicly like I'm dragging cement blocks, but like, the pyramids were made out of cement blocks - or not cement". In a recent interview, she revealed that she's happy with her new image, describing her previous persona as the "old Katy Perry".

Anxious that Perry might expose more about herself than she meant to, the singer's associates encouraged her to cut the conversation short. "I can go around them".
