Twitter Apologises For Mistakenly Forcing Over Half A Million People To Automatically Follow Donald Trump
Twitter users were alarmed when they woke up on Friday to discover that their accounts have quietly been made to automatically start following Donald Trump on inauguration.
Users accused the social media platform of ‘forcing’ them to follow Donald Trump on Friday before Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey issued an apology.
Dorsey explained their efforts to transfer Obama off the official @POTUS account caused more than half a million people to mistakenly follow the Donald.
Soon after Trump was sworn in as the 45th president, Twitter users began noticing his tweets on their feed despite never having followed him.
