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

Published

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.

Trump Was A Longtime Presbyterian, Now He Says He Is Non-Denominational Christian

Doin’ things his way…

From New York Post: President Trump, who has long identified as a Presbyterian, now considers himself a non-denominational Christian, a new report said. The president shared his change in religious identity in a written interview with the Religious News Service. “Though I was confirmed at a Presbyterian church as a child, I now consider myself to be a non-denominational Christian,” Trump wrote, without giving an explanation for the transformation or saying when it occurred. Because everything is so PC and everybody is afraid of saying the wrong thing, free speech is at an all-time low. People are getting fired from their jobs, even expelled from school. At the end of the day, this proves that the left is winning. And it has to stop.
