I can understand why more than 5 million people follow Ellen DeGeneres and glad to see that 1.6 million follow Rachel Maddow. These are awesome women! And the guys in the top 15, a lot of them I follow too: Ricky Martin, Adam Lambert, Neil Patrick Harris and Chris Colfer.
But Samantha Ronson has more than 1.5 million Twitter followers? I can see how interest was way up when she and ex-girlfriend Lindsay Lohan were fighting all the time but the number really surprises me. Lindsay herself has just over 1 million.
Love that Michael Ausiello, a hard-working TV writer for Entertainment Weekly who always has great scoops about our favorite shows, made the top 10 with 1.1 million followers.

2. Perez Hilton (blogger) 2,378,242
