Little Monsters, Beliebers, Directioners, And More: How Many Fan Bases Can You Name?

"Smilers, Directioners, Beliebers, Swifties, Lovatics, Selenators. It doesn't matter which fan base you are in. We Are Proud Of Our Idols," a Miley Cyrus fan ("Smiler") tweeted last week.

Unless you're particularly well-versed in teen pop culture, that tweet might sound like another language to you. And it practically is -- it's the language of fans. Teen celebs attract millions upon millions of fiercely loyal, highly protective bands of fans on Twitter. Each following has its own special name, like Lady Gaga's "Little Monsters" and Justin Biebers "Beliebers." With passions running high, it comes as no surprise that the competing fan groups often break out into Twitter wars and angry comments.
