Biden Twitter account 'starts from zero' with no Trump followers
US president-elect Joe Biden has been given his new official presidential Twitter account, but has been forced to start it with zero followers. Donald Trump inherited the Potus account's 13 million or so followers when it moved to him from Mr Obama - but that will not happen this time. Mr Trump rarely used that account, favouring his own Twitter handle. The US National Archives has already announced - through a tweet - that it will archive all social media content from that account, despite Twitter's lack of a commitment to doing so. Twitter has permanently suspended Mr Trump from its platform and it remains unclear if it will ever archive his account for posterity.
