3. By the Numbers: President Trump's Twitter following. President Trump has continued to rail against Twitter and an undocumented, programmatic bias he says the platform has against him and other conservative figures. Just today in an interview with Fox Business he reiterated the charge, suggesting that "they make it very hard for people to join me on Twitter," as though there were some obstacle preventing users from seeing his broadly publicized tweets, or from hitting the follow button on his page. Trump's Twitter following has, in actual fact, been steadily growing since he became a candidate for president, and only noticeably dipped once, during Twitter's July 2018 purge of fake accounts, by about 200,000 followers — Barack Obama's account lost 400,000 in that same purge, and Trump recovered more than that number within 20 days. Below, a look at Trump's Twitter following since 2014.
