Twitter War Helps Lady Gaga sell 1 million Tracks on iTunes

Posted on Feb 21 2011 - 7:39pm by Matt Jackson

It’s seems the fame monster, Lady Gaga and her single Born This Way has become the fastest selling track on iTunes, no mean feat and one that has undoubtedly been spurred on by Twitter and social networking.

Gaga is the most followed person on Twitter with a might impressive 8.2 million followers, over the last week this has undoubtedly helped her rake in the sales but not for the reason you would expect, it’s not through spamming her followers but more like ranting at them about a claim the song was like Madonna’s ‘Express Yourself’.

This flared up much debate between fans with some siding with Lady Gaga and other insisting it was a rip off. Either way the hashtags were flying all week resulting in her topping iTunes charts and selling the monumental sum of tracks.

The achievement wasn’t enough to beat Adele to the UK number 1 spot on Sunday though, who knows what will happen this week though?

The power of Twitter compels you!
