Elon Musk has surpassed former president Barack Obama as the most followed Twitter user. As of the right moment, the billionaire has 133,068,709 followers compared to Obama’s 133,042,819 followers, as seen by the follower counts stated on their respective Twitter profiles.
Musk’s $44 billion purchase of Twitter has likely contributed to a meteoric rise in his follower count past that of Obama. Last June, the founder of Twitter reached 100 million followers, and in the months after, that total has only increased.
Musk uses his account to announce numerous improvements coming to Twitter in between posting random and occasionally nasty memes. Also, he has polled his followers on important issues like whether to reinstate Donald Trump on the site and if Elon Musk needs to stand down as Twitter’s CEO.
Obama uses his account primarily for professional objectives, such as promoting an important cause or showcasing some of the work he accomplished as president. Musk’s posting habits are in stark contrast to Obama’s. The same is true for Katy Perry and Justin Bieber, who are ranked third and fourth in terms of most followers, respectively.
