President Biden is going to need some Twitter followers. Twitter plans to wipe out all followers from the @POTUS and @WhiteHouse accounts once Biden is sworn in on January 20th, rather than transferring the accounts’ existing followers over to the new administration, according to Rob Flaherty, Biden’s digital director.

“In 2016, the Trump admin absorbed all of President Obama's Twitter followers on @POTUS and @WhiteHouse -- at Team 44's urging. In 2020, Twitter has informed us that as of right now the Biden administration will have to start from zero,” Rob Flaherty, Biden’s digital director, tweeted.
At the same time, @VP, @FLOTUS, @PressSec, @Cabinet, and @LaCasaBlanca accounts will also start a fresh with zero followers once Biden is sworn in as Americas next president.
Currently, @POTUS, @TheWhiteHouse, @FLOTUS and @PressSec have 33.2 million, 26 million, 16 million and 6 million followers on Twitter, respectively.
