Is Twitter Force-Following Donald Trump’s @POTUS Account?
But then, a little later today, I checked them and lo and behold — I was suddenly following both accounts again!
OK. I know distributed network databases can be tricky and get out of sync, so I was willing to give Twitter the benefit of the doubt and assume they were restoring the follower lists after switching account ownership, and it took some time to propagate across their entire network.
Hence, the question in the title of this article.
I hope Twitter will clarify what’s going on here, because it’s happening to a lot of people and they’re not happy about it.
We are aware of the issue with migrating @POTUS followers and investigating. More soon.
