Biden @POTUS account to start from zero


Twitter has told President-elect Joe Biden’s transition team that President Donald Trump’s followers will not carry over to the official Twitter accounts assigned to the new president and White House in January, a reversal from 2016. That means the Biden administra­tion will start with zero followers.

The @POTUS account has more than 33 million followers while @WhiteHouse has 26 million. Each account had more than 13 million followers on Inaugurati­on Day 2017. When Trump was sworn in, all the followers of @POTUS also automatica­lly followed @ POTUS44, an archive of President Barack Obama’s official tweets.
