Justin Bieber has become the first person to get 40 million Twitter followers.

Justin Bieber has become the first Twitter user to reach 40 million followers.

The Beauty and a Beat hitmaker ? who joined the micro-blogging site in 2009 ? has beaten other stars, including Lady Gaga and Taylor Swift, to the milestone with his @justinbieber account.

He wrote, "#40millionstrong" before later adding, "#40millionBeliebers ? thank you. I love u. #grateful (sic)."

Justin's Twitter record comes soon after Side Effects actor Channing Tatum revealed he was worried about the 19-year-old singer.

The 33-year-old actor thinks the All around the World hitmaker ? who was discovered at the age of 14 ? found fame too young and hopes he doesn't go off the rails like many child stars do.

He said, "I do believe that [at] whatever age you become famous, you end up staying that age.

"I worry about Bieber, man. That kid's wildly talented. I hope he doesn't fall down into the usual ways of young kids because it's so hard for someone to be responsible when they're not asked to be."
