Bangalore: Twitter, the most popular microsblogging website has many stars to its name, literally. The stars from varied fields from talk shows to Hollywood to politics to spirituality and many more across the lines that define boundaries in world map are Twitterers.



All in a matter of 24 hours, Charlie Sheen of Two and Half Men fame, who got fired from the show, stunned the world when his twitter account got flooded with followers, and so did pop Benedict XIV, with more than 300,000 followers in a day. If you want to beat curiosity about who else achieved such feat, read on to know the 10 celebrities who got most twitter followers in a single day as compiled by Complex Tech.        



#10 Oprah Winfrey



Date joined: April 16, 2009
Followers gained in 24 hours: 130,000
Twitter handle: @Oprah



Her Twitter quote “You get in life what you have the courage to ask for,” says a lot about her personality. She is an American media person, talk show host, actress, producer, and philanthropist. Winfrey is best known for her self-titled, multi-award-winning talk show "The Oprah Winfrey Show" which was the highest-rated program of its kind in history. She is popularly called as Queen of Daytime Media.



The recent Oprah Winfrey interview of disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong on Thursday was an eye popper. She shunned all her niceties, called him out as a bully and a brazen liar, after he admitted to years of systematic doping.



She touches all the subjects— world issues, pop culture, celebrities and many others on her talk show.

Oprah’s endorsing the Microsoft tablet as part of her “Oprah’s Favorite Things” however garnered criticism.
