Kaka becomes first athlete to pass 10m fans on Twitter
Brazilian star @Kaka has become the first sportsman to pass the 10m mark on Twitter. He passed the landmark overnight with a total now of some 10,007,400 fans.
He ranks 17th on the list of the biggest stars on the platform, still some 10m behind the likes of Justin Beiber and Lady Gaga. What makes him unique is that he reaches out to fans in different countries through his tweets which are repeated in English, Spanish and Portuguese, he also takes time out to reply to many of the questions fans pose to him on a regular basis.
In the last day he has gained almost 30,000 fans, giving him an average of 25,000 fans a day being added since he launched his account on October 17th 2009 (stats from TwitterCounter.com)
A landmark for the Real Madrid attacking midfielder but more importantly for him is helping his club get into the Champions League final with their game tonight against FC Bayern!
