Kimora Joins HIGHLY Exclusive Club

"One millllion followers."

When I started following Kimora Lee Simmons on Twitter, after I'd been following an impostor for a little while, I think she had about 90,000 followers.  I remember thinking, "Gosh, she should have far more supporters than this on this thing."  If my memory also serves me correctly, I started following her not very long before she and Baby Phat parted ways.  Maybe a few months before.  I think Baby Phat had over 100,000 followers at the time.  My how things have changed.

Today, Kimora broke the highly coveted one million follower milestone. From a January 16, 2012 article:
According to my research, there are nearly 700 Twitter users with one million or more followers—691 at the time of writing this, although someone new enters the club about twice a week these days. The most recently added member is actress Christina Applegate, and rapper Lupe Fiasco looks poised to be number 692. This club represents about 0.00003% of total users, so it's a very exclusive membership.
 Hell yeah it's exclusive! Not even a full percentage point. Not even a half percentage point.  It is, indeed, the sh*t.  Kimora interacts with her followers quite often every week, so hit that "Follow" button and watch her work her magic!  I checked Baby Phat's Twitter to see how they're holding up....not good. Barely over 90,000. Just stagnate, except for losing thousands of followers since Kimora left.  What idiots these guys are.  You should have never allowed Kimora to get away Kellwood.  I've been going easy on you in recent months as I've been spending more time promoting Kimora's other ventures, namely JustFabulous, which is launching Avril Lavigne's Abbey Dawn Collection tomorrow and Shinto Clinical by Kimora Lee Simmons -- her new skin care line which launched only weeks ago on QVC.  But, you are still on my radar and the day that you announce that Baby Phat is going out of business will be one of the happiest days of my life.  And, let's be honest here, we all know that day is not very far away. --Sugar
