The feat was attained only a day after the former Juventus and Real Madrid forward turned 37.
On his birthday, he had 399 million followers and made the post:
“But in the end, it all comes down to family, love, honesty, friendship,values that make it all worth it. Thanks for all the messages! 37 and counting!”
Following Cristiano Ronaldo, model and cosmetic business tycoon Kylie Jenner is second on the ranking with over 309 million followers, while Lionel Messi is close behind with 306 million.
English broadcaster Piers Morgan congratulated Ronaldo for his new milestone on Sunday, sharing a photo of the Manchester United player on Twitter.
