Oprah is now the fastest millionaire on Twitter (fastest with one millionaire followers on Twitter), in less than a month after joining Twitter and sending her first tweet, Oprah Winfrey has reached 1 million followers.

She has sent only 42 tweets in this one month all of them via the Web. It was a silent finish for Oprah unlike the publicity and fanfare a month ago when Ashton Kutcher beat CNN to be the first 1st millionaire (1st with one millionaire followers on Twitter ). Kutcher now has 1.74 million followers, Twitter trends suggest he’ll reach 2 million followers in the next 10 days. CNN’s has 1.46 million followers. More celebrities and companies are realising the potential of Twitter and the need build a community of like minded people

Twitter can be a great tool to market your website, blog or personality if you know need to build a Twitter following and converse with them on a daily basis.

    If you are famous than you can gain the followers instantly and these are the perfect example of that. But to gain followers for like us its bit lengthy and laborious jobs.

    I think Oprah is going to pass Kutcher in a few months here.

  • kitchen taps May 19, 2009, 5:41 am

    Indeed, she is a very famous personality but that is also true that this is really good job in such short time.

  • caitlin@uk web hosting May 19, 2009, 8:58 am

    I automatically assumed she must have someone writing her tweets for her, but I guess she really is writing them herself. Good for her!

  • Lena Steuern@ sicher Kaufen und Verkaufen May 19, 2009, 12:24 pm

    That’s too many followers to even imagine.. that’s incredible! and in such a short space of time! Why does Ashton Kutcher have so many followers? He’s not really prominent in a lot of the Hollywood movies these days – I guess he’s on twitter to promote himself.. he obviously does it well

    No wonder! Oprah is one of the most popular TV shows. It has a huge audience – and many of them have twitter accounts, too. So it is simple – successful on TV, as well as in the Internet ( Twitter ).

  • Matt@Sydney SEO Lessons May 23, 2009, 4:01 am

    I’m amazed at the popularity of Twitter. It seems to have just exploded recently.

    Seems to have left the traditional blogosphere in the dust. Makes me feel a bit behind the times already!

    I love blogging, and the blogosphere. It’s informative, useful, enjoyable to do. You can go into things in detail. But I just don’t understand the appeal of Twitter. I mean, how much can you say in 140 characters?

  • bingo live free May 24, 2009, 11:51 pm

    It sounds really wonderful. But Oprah is very popular celebrity and it was easy to her but its a nice achievement. Well done.

  • Anton@Web Development Outsourcing May 25, 2009, 11:50 pm

    Haha, she is really great 😉

  • Postcard Mailing June 2, 2009, 11:21 pm

    This is a perfect example of the reach and pull that Twitter has over people of all ages. If you compare the three mentioned here, CNN, Ashton Kutcher, Oprah, all three cater to varying audiences. And with millions of followers, the power of a single tweet from these influential people or group could be massive. Thanks!

  • gas card June 5, 2009, 10:11 pm

    Never underestimate the power of Oprah .. haha and she didn’t even propose anything like kutcher did. But.. I imagine it must be so hard to manage those number of twitter followers!

  • Make Money Online June 9, 2009, 7:42 pm

    People who is famous will be getting tons of followers in short time. If you’re a famous artist and you have a Twitter, I’m sure you will receive tons of followers in short time. Btw, 2mil followers is a huge figure. lol! 😀

    The number of Twitter followers of Oprah and Ashton are really mind blowing. I wonder how do they achieve these figures in such a short time. Talking of Twitter – it has turned to be one of the most sought after IM tool on the web. Obama using Twitter during his presidential campaign more than speaks about its popularity. All holywood celebrities send regular tweets to woe their fans. Twitter is just wonderful!

    Oprah is popular and twitter is the service that is widely used now. So I am pretty amused that it is not like 2 millions already.

  • Tommy@Earn Money Online December 8, 2010, 5:43 pm

    Oprah is so popular. Now the show is moving to the social bookmarking sites.
