U.S. President-elect Joe Biden will get his official tweet going as President following his inauguration next week.
However, his new official Twitter account will start with zero followers.
This move is a marked change from the last transition, where the incoming President inherited an account with millions of followers.
Donald Trump inherited the Potus account with about 13 million or more followers when it moved to him from President Obama.
The new account, @PresElectBiden, will change into the official @POTUS (President of the United States) one on inauguration day on 20 January.
In its first six hours online, it gained nearly 400,000 followers.
Mr. Biden’s account currently has 24 million followers.
