Twitter has made it clear that on Inauguration Day, it’s wiping all of the followers from government accounts like @POTUS, thereby leaving Joe Biden with zero followers on Day 1. Obviously, he’ll regain his own followers, but The Daily Wire and other outlets are reporting that the Biden-Harris transition team is pretty upset with Jack for clearing the decks for the new administration.

On Wednesday, Biden-Harris transition spokesperson Cameron French told CNN, “Twitter’s reluctance to transfer millions of followers from the Trump Administration to the Biden Administration unnecessarily politicizes what otherwise should be a routine transfer of communication from one administration to the next.”
Sorry, buddy. You start from zero just like everyone else. Isn’t this the charismatic dynamo who convinced 81 million Americans to vote for him? Plus, he doesn’t even write his own tweets.

Let me see how I can say this politely. Shove it.

Sure, so he can watch us unsub

Oh hell, I'll be unfollowing all of those accounts.

The “most popular” presidential candidate in US history shouldn’t ask for hand-me-downs.

Joe didn’t build that?

Just like they wish they had his rally attendees. Give them to him, and measure how many unfollow after the switch.

Twitter should allow that. All of Trump's MAGA crowd suddenly following Biden? He wouldn't regret that at all.

He can have them. It’ll be hilarious to watch Biden’s Twitter followers end up exactly where they are at now.

You really don’t want that Joe. Trust me…

Careful what you wish for. 80,000,000 hateful tweet responses every time this clown decides to pontificate about “you know the thing” will not do well for the mental health of the poor intern tasked with keeping the senile @JoeBiden “relevant” in the tweeter sphere
