Following Instagram's recent purge of fake accounts, Kim Kardashian has officially become the most-followed person on the popular social media network overtaking Justin Bieber. The change in place comes as a result of 3.8 million spam accounts being removed from Bieber's fan base. The international celebutante now has 22.2 million with Beyoncé coming in just behind with 21.4 million, leaving Bieber in third with 20 million Beliebers.

Other notable drops in followers include Selena Gomez and Ariana Grande who saw their followings drop by 1.1 million and 1.6 million, respectively. Most suspect of all, however, is rapper Ma$e, who had 1.6 million followers - that is until a few days ago - when he saw his followers drop to a paltry 100,000 followed by a prompt deleting of his account altogether.

The news comes at a time when Instagram has also trumped Twitter as having more registered users, signaling a shift in consumer habits from a text-based culture to a more visual-based one and confirms Kim's unparalleled ability to #BreakTheInternet.
