Prime Minister Hatoyama Overtakes Japanese Twitter Top Position From Gachapin

634,519 followers
628,731 followers

Incidentally, there was a battle for overall top position happend yesterday between Britney Spears and Ashton Kutcher. Number of their followers are little bit less than 5 million, whilst Japan’s top is battled around 630,000.

Gachapin was one of Japanese recommended users, who are not pushed to newcomers anymore. Hatoyama’s getting followers is, of course, comes from his popularity by being a government leader. Both have not mentioned on this race.
