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.

There were rumors. Plenty of assumptions. Because at the end of the day, even liberals know that conservatives aren’t the types of people to wreak havoc, storm buildings, and cause property damage. This guy is the third known far-left radical to be caught wearing pro-Trump garb during the riot at the Capitol building on January 6. What are the odds the mainstream media covers this one?

Secret Recording Exposes Twitter CEO: Censorship Ban to Be ‘Much Bigger’ Than Just Trump

Bad, bad, bad – all bad!

If they can censor the most powerful man in the entire world, then there’s no problem whatsoever when it comes to silencing you. And guess what? They did censor the most powerful man on the planet. Do you get where this is going? It’s not good. LOOK: https://twitter.com/JamesOKeefeIII/status/1349853804590579713?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1349853804590579713%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fbreaking-secret-recording-of-twitters-jack-dorsey-saying-trump-ban-is-only-the-beginning%2F Social media giants went on a censorship rampage since the riot at the Capitol, banning groups left and right (but obviously not left). And now that Democrats will have control of the House, Senate, and White House, the First Amendment will seemingly take a serious hit on a daily basis. Don’t forget: Joe Biden has already appointed a lot of Big Tech people to powerful positions within the federal government. It’s all connected, one way or the other. From Breitbart: Twitter has permanently banned the account of the president of the United States, Donald J. Trump.

Baldwin’s account is still fully functional.
