Obama’s Twitter Takes Massive Hit, Loses 2 Million Followers. Here’s The Reason Why

Published

on

Former President Barack Obama’s Twitter account took a huge hit this week, losing over two million followers. Before you get too excited, thinking his popularity is waning now that he’s not in office and that folks are somehow waking up to the idiocy of leftism, here’s the real reason he lost so many.

They were all fake or inactive accounts.

Now, what that really means, is that a whole lot of Obama’s “audience” is non-existent. Gee, liberals padding the numbers? Nah, no way….

Obama had 104 million Twitter followers before Twitter’s purge, according to The Hill, and had around 101 million by Thursday evening.

Still, the former president trails only Katy Perry and Justin Bieber on the platform, and the three boast the only accounts to have over 100 million followers.

President Trump reportedly had 53.4 million Twitter followers before the Twitter purge, and has lost around 300,000 for a Thursday evening follower count of 53.1 million. Trump remains the 18th most-followed person on Twitter.

On Wednesday, Twitter announced its intention to remove “locked accounts” from follower counts in order to “build trust and encourage healthy conversation on Twitter.”

The drop in Twitter followers came after the platform formally announced on Wednesday that it would begin the process of removing “locked accounts” from follower counts in an effort “to build trust and encourage healthy conversation on Twitter.”

Social media was one of the tools the left used to mobilize young people in the Democratic Party, connecting with them using platforms they were comfortable with.

However, President Trump has taken the use of social media to an all new level by using it to build his entire base and essentially win the presidential election with his brand of brutally honest tweeting.

One thing’s for sure. Like it or not, the usage of social media has a huge impact on elections and if the platform isn’t utilized correctly, GOP candidates run the risk of losing to their Democratic opponents.

PHOTOS: Democrat Lawmaker Simulates Assassination of Trump During Political Fundraiser

Imagine if the roles were reversed.

Why are Democrats still allowed to say they accept everyone? Even they know that that isn’t true. Unless you agree with the far-left 100% of the time, you’re not welcome to so much as give an opinion. Check out a Democrat state lawmaker simulating the assassination of President Trump during a recent fundraiser. Replace “Democrat” with Republican and “Trump” with Obama and imagine the outrage. A political fundraiser for @SenatorSandoval simulates an assassination attempt against a mock @realDonaldTrump decked out in Mexican garb. Looks like a man pointed a fake assault weapon at the fake President to pose for a picture. https://twitter.com/MarkMaxwellTV/status/1162782536248057856?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1162782536248057856&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2019%2F08%2Fpolitical-fundraiser-for-illinois-democrat-state-lawmaker-simulates-assassination-attempt-of-president-trump%2F Reactions: Now @DemsforIllinois responds: “The tragedies in El Paso and Gilroy have demonstrated how hate-filled political rhetoric can fuel violence. These images are unacceptable and dangerous. The place to make our voices heard against Trump is at the ballot box.” https://twitter.com/MarkMaxwellTV/status/1163144306577870848?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1163144306577870848&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fgregp-3534%2F2019%2F08%2F18%2Fno-big-deal-just-a-simulated-assassination-of-president-trump-at-a-fundraiser-for-an-illinois-dem%2F From @GovPritzker: “As our nation grapples with the epidemic of gun violence, purposely pointing a fake gun at anyone is insensitive and wrong. I condemn actions like the ones displayed in the pictures because they lack the civility our politics demands.” https://twitter.com/MarkMaxwellTV/status/1162867673442766853?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1162867673442766853&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fgregp-3534%2F2019%2F08%2F18%2Fno-big-deal-just-a-simulated-assassination-of-president-trump-at-a-fundraiser-for-an-illinois-dem%2F The guy later apologized… Response from @SenatorSandoval: “The incident that took place is unacceptable.

In other words, Dandoval is a good Democrat. From Fox2Now: Illinois lawmakers want to jack up the gasoline tax. Legislation has been introduced in Springfield that would double the tax and use the revenue for major road and bridge improvements across the state. Lawmakers are trying to find ways to pay for badly needed infrastructure improvements. State Senators Don DeWitte (R-33rd District) and Martin Sandoval (D-11th District) want to more than…

It takes a very special person to be a member of Antifa – or a Democrat, in general. You literally have to hate your country while at the same time remain ignorant as to have good you have it here in the states. Quite the combo. Check out what some radical liberal goons were up to in Portland this past weekend… Antifa attacks people on a bus. They try to pull them out and hit them with a hammer. #PortlandProtests https://twitter.com/MrAndyNgo/status/1162833952190582785?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1162833952190582785&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F08%2F17%2Fantifail-antifa-protester-loses-fight-with-bus-plus-bonus-gif-another-tries-really-hard-to-tear-up-a-maga-hat%2F Check out what happens when one goofball chases after a bus… When the buses left, antifa chased it down and broke windows.

Remember this…?? From Daily Caller: Former Vice President Joe Biden endorsed Antifa in a video announcing his presidential bid Thursday, characterizing the group as “courageous” and saying it’s wrong to draw a moral equivalence between white nationalist groups and those opposing them. The violent methods of Antifa are well documented. The nebulous group often uses these violent means against peaceful conservative speakers, benign free speech advocates, and even journalists. In a retelling of the events at a 2017 white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Va., Biden describes the white nationalists as having…
