London - The Twitter shout-out is the benchmark for athletes of these Olympic Games, and a tweet from Justin Bieber is the pinnacle.

But Gabby Douglas, who got a tweet from Biebs earlier this week, is pulling in a star-studded haul. Her list following her all-around gold medal included Michael Phelps, Oprah Winfrey, Timbaland and actresses Gabrielle Union, Elizabeth Banks and Octavia Spencer.

"Oh wow, I tweeted about #Gabby earlier but she responds to [Lil Wayne] and not me? U know what? Ima fight u. I've had it!!!" Minaj tweeted.
