    Trump Leaves Biden in the Dust Again, Surpasses Record He’s Been Working on for 15 Years After Twitter Engineers Intervene

    Published on

    Former President Donald Trump has more than doubled President Joe Biden’s number of followers on Twitter thanks to a little help from the programmers at Twitter.

    In March 2007, Biden started a Twitter account, which now has 36.5 million followers.

    On Sunday at 3:26 p.m. Eastern Time, 86.9 million people were following Trump’s account. Elon Musk, the owner of Twitter, claimed that Trump’s enormous following had received some behind-the-scenes assistance.

    When he was suspended on January 8, 2021, Trump had more than 88 million Twitter followers according to Reuters.

    On Twitter, Trump was reinstated. After an Elon Musk-created survey on Twitter on Saturday. More than 15 million people used Twitter to cast their votes, and 51.8% of them wanted Trump to be re-elected.

    According to Reuters, earlier on Saturday, Trump denied having any plans to join Twitter again.

    In a video address to the Republican Jewish Coalition’s leadership conference, he stated, “I don’t see any reason for it.”

    Trump, who most recently said he will run for president in 2024 on the Republican ticket, announced he would stay on his Truth Social platform, which was created by a business he controls. He remarked that Truth Social was “phenomenally well” doing.

    Nevertheless, a lot of people applauded the choice, while others disapproved.

    According to The New York Times, Joan Donovan, the research director at Harvard’s Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics, and Public Policy believes Trump might turn Twitter into a “hotbed of hate, harassment, and incitement.”

    “The difference between Twitter and Truth Social isn’t just a matter of degree. It’s a matter of influence — global leaders, journalists, technologists, celebrities, culture makers, these are the people that are on Twitter,” according to Donovan.

    Derrick Johnson, president of the N.A.A.C.P., issued a statement saying that “Any advertiser still funding Twitter should immediately pause all advertising.”

    He claimed that “in Elon Musk’s Twittersphere, you can incite an insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, which led to the deaths of multiple people, and still be allowed to spew hate speech and violent conspiracies on his platform.”
