Trump still has 4 times as many followers….
But he’s gonna keep losing them as his days in office shrink…
Biden, who isn’t a big twitter person will keep picking up more ….
That’s just a tiny fraction of his 88.6 million followers — but it’s a shift for an account that had largely been growing at a fast clip for most of his time in office, even as he attacked social media companies for censoring conservatives. Trump had only 20.8 million followers when he took office on Jan. 20, 2017, per Factba.se.
