Twitter CEO, Elon Musk has dethroned former U.S. President Barack Obama as the most followed person on Twitter.
"According to the follower counts reported on their respective Twitter profiles, Elon Musk has 133,068,709 followers compared to Obama’s 133,042,819. "
It is believed that Elon Musk’s $44 billion acquisition of Twitter has undoubtedly helped skyrocket his follower count past Obama’s.
Before the acquisition, Musk hit 100 million followers last June, and that number has only continued to grow in the months that followed.
Also, he uses his account to communicate various changes coming to Twitter. Therefore, this might probably be another reason for the takeover.
