Twitter crowned its new king today: Justin Bieber.

On Thursday (August 31), the 23-year-old star officially reached 100 million followers on the platform, and the landmark moment even produced its very own hashtag: #100MBeliebers, complete with a special mini Bieber emoji of the “Friends” singer himself.

While he’s still 3 million shy of eclipsing “Swish Swish” singer Katy Perry (who holds the top spot at 103 million), Bieber made history as the first male user ever to reach such a feat.

Falling second in line is Reputation songstress Taylor Swift at 85 million, with Rihanna (76 million) and Lady Gaga (69 million) holding third and fourth place, respectively.

Congrats, Justin! (And you too, Beliebers!)
