That’s also something. If you are just the most powerful man in the world, you should start with zero followers on Twitter. The social media platform plans to remove all followers from the @POTUS and @ WhiteHouse accounts once Biden is sworn in on January 20th. The existing followers of the accounts will then not be transferred to the new president.
All accounts are cleared
The accounts of @VP, @FLOTUS, @PressSec, @Cabinet and @LaCasaBlanca will also erase their followers, Twitter tells US tech websites.
While the president has many pulpits to speak of, it cannot be denied that Twitter has become a major communication tool for the president after the past four years. The accounts also have millions of followers.
The transfer did not go smoothly in 2017
Things did not go entirely well during the transfer in 2017 . Then Twitter apologized because followers of the account (then Obama was president) immediately followed Donald Trump. Not everyone was happy with that. Twitter says this action has nothing to do with the 2017 incident.
