Can you transfer a BRAND over night ?
Never believe the Follower count on Twitter. Many of you might not have noticed but all of a sudden you are following @POTUS on Twitter! https://twitter.com/POTUS
Twitter made 14 Million followers over night by not most of them even doing it themselves!
How does this happen? Well supposedly –
Donald Trump will be sworn in as the 45th president of the United States on Friday, and he’ll immediately inherit loads of power and responsibility. Oh, he’ll also inherit a second Twitter account.
Starting Friday, @POTUS, the official Twitter account created by The White House and reserved for the sitting president, will change hands from Barack Obama’s team to Trump’s administration.
Included in the exchange: @POTUS’s 13.6 million followers.
That means that if you currently follow @POTUS under the Obama administration, you’ll continue to follow the account as it moves under Trump’s control. The stream of tweets will be wiped clean so Trump and his team can start fresh.
Twitter will also automatically follow a new account for you — @POTUS44 — where Obama’s stream of tweets live. The same process will take place for a number of other high-profile accounts, like @FLOTUS (First Lady Michelle Obama) and @WhiteHouse.
