Donald Trump Reaches 20 Million Twitter Followers Ahead of Inauguration

President-elect Donald Trump will use any podium to communicate, but it has long seemed that Twitter is his favorite place to express his thoughts and opinions.

Here are some fun facts about the next POTUS’ relationship with the social network.

  • Trump, who is to become the 45th President of the US on Friday, joined Twitter all the way back in 2009, long before it truly took off as the microblogging platform we know today. This was more than half a decade before Barack Obama joined Twitter a year into his second run.

  • Despite Twitter executives leaning hard to the left—and many users calling for his ban—Trump credits Twitter for giving him a platform to combat “dishonest” media coverage of him.

Trump’s inauguration is this Friday, January 20.
