Twitter plans to ‘reset’ the president’s official account.

Washington. It may be one of the worst nightmares for any Twitter user to wake up in the morning and not have a single ‘follower’, but with the official account of the US President on Wednesday, it is actually happening. Going to do. Twitter has planned to ‘reset’ the official account of the President with the change of power in the country, which will remove all the ‘followers’ of this account. The ‘Twitter’ account ‘POTS’ ie ‘President of the United States’ will be archived in the name of ‘POTS45’, the 45th President of America. Earlier, the account of former President Barack Obama’s office was also archived in the name of ‘POTS44’.
All the ‘followers’ of Obama were retained on the ‘POTS’ account received by Trump after the transfer of power. ‘Followers’ of this Trump tenure account who ‘follow’ relevant accounts such as newly elected President Joe Biden and newly elected Vice President Kamala Harris will be given a suggestion (notification) to ‘follow’ the new account. Biden’s team is not happy with this.
The newly-elected president’s director of ‘digital’ affairs, Rob Faleherty, tweeted last week that the plan to ‘reset’ followers is completely inadequate.
On the other hand, Twitter says that doing a ‘reset’ gives people the option of not ‘following’ the new account. Significantly, Twitter has banned Trump’s personal ‘RealDonaldTrump’ account forever due to his objectionable and misleading tweet.
Joe Biden will take over as US President on January 20 and will get a new ‘POTS’ account. Along with this, other official accounts like ‘POTS’ and ‘FOTS’ (First Lady of America) related to the Trump tenure will be archived.
Meanwhile, Facebook hasn’t changed its policy and the White House’s Facebook and Instagram accounts will continue to have the same number of ‘followers’ as the new administration after the new administration takes over.
