Joe Biden's new account gained more than half a million followers in a couple of hours after it appeared.
President-elect Joe Biden's team created his official Twitter account, @PresElectBiden. The new account gained more than 835,000 followers in its first few hours of operation. After Biden's inauguration on January 20, the account will become @POTUS (President of the United States), the official account of the president of the United States.
It is noted that Twitter did not give Biden Trump's presidential account. Earlier, former President Barack Obama handed over his accounts to Donald Trump along with 13 million readers.
Obama was the first White House leader to have an official Twitter account. At the end of his second term, Obama's page was renamed @POTUS44 and frozen. Apparently, the same fate awaits Trump's account вЂ” it will be renamed @POTUS45 and also frozen.
It was previously reported that Facebook was blocking the creation of events before Biden's inauguration. The company fears new riots by Trump supporters in Washington and wants to ensure security.
We add that for the day of Biden's inauguration, Washington, D.C. has been made a вЂњfortress.вЂќ The center is closed, public transportation is stopped, there is a lot of law enforcement and military in the city.
