Twitter Investigates Glitch Over POTUS Handle



Some Twitter users raised an alarm when they found out all of the sudden they followed the POTUS twitter handle which they were never following.

POTUS - President Of The United States

So twitter swung into action to investigate what caused the glitch. The POTUS account rolls back to 0 tweets as Donald trump takes up the account. The POTUS twitter account has 13 Million followers as of the time Former president Obama Handed over.


In a series of tweets published Saturday, Dorsey says the transition was scheduled to take effect at noon ET. This means Users who followed the POTUS account before noon would follow both POTUS and POTUS44.

However, Dorsey says some users who followed POTUS44 after noon were mistakenly set to also follow POTUS. Also, some people who unfollowed POTUS prior to the change were unintentionally added again as followers.

"We believe this affected about 560,000 people," said Dorsey. "This was a mistake, it wasn't right, we own it, and we apologize. No excuses." Dorsey says the issues have been fixed.

The new POTUS Twitter account has 14.2 million followers as of Saturday afternoon. Meanwhile, Trump's personal account, which he continues to use regularly, has more than 21 million followers.
