With Joe Biden officially serving as President of the United States yesterday, he has also gained access to the Twitter account @POTUS (President Of The United States). With that account he now follows 12 profiles. 11 employees and… Chrissy Teigen. This is why.
The title of President of the United States also includes a special Twitter account. Until yesterday was @POTUS in the hands of Donald Trump (who no longer had access to Twitter himself). But after the inauguration, the profile was turned over to the new president Joe Biden. He could then again follow other profiles. And that became 12 in total. 11 of them are the usual suspects, members of his entourage, his wife Jill Biden and other political profiles. But there is also one among those names outsider: Chrissy Teigen.
Chrissy Teigen is an outspoken Democrat. For example, she extensively celebrated Joe Biden’s victory with her husband John Legend and was also present during the inauguration with her family. But she is also one of the 12 accounts followed by the new president. This is how she managed that.
Chrissy tweeted, “Hi Joe Biden, I’ve been banned by the president for four years. Would you please follow me? ” Chrissy Teigen was indeed blocked on Twitter for four years by former President Donald Trump. This happened because she regularly expressed her dissatisfaction with Trump. As a result, she was unable to view the tweets from @POTUS, the official profile of the President of the United States, for four years. But now that there is a new president, Chrissy took her chance.
11 employees and Chrissy Teigen
And Chrissy won her home. Because a few hours later, Twitterers discovered that the president followed Chrissy Teigen in addition to his employees. And of course Chrissy herself was over the moon. “OH MY GOD!!!!!!!!!! ”, she responded.
Later she expanded her response a little more. “My heart, oh my god, lmao. I can finally see the president’s tweets and they probably won’t be as disturbed anymore. ”
Jill Biden also got access to the account @FLOTUS (First Lady Of The United States). She is not following anyone yet, but has already shared some videos. Kamala Harris, in turn, was given access to the account @VP (Vice President). She already follows nearly 800 accounts. The most special among them is probably the account of the Korean boy band BTS. Harris previously indicated that she was a fan of BTS. She included one of the group’s songs in her playlist.
