When American president Barack Obama joined Twitter in May, 2015 he broke Robert Downey Jr.’s record of reaching one million followers in the fastest time ever according to Guinness Book of World Records. Obama reached the number in under five hours, while it took Downey Jr. over 23 hours to achieve the same.
The Prez has now taken to Facebook and seems to be setting new bench-marks of popularity on the social media platform already. Within hours of announcing the account, he has over 600,000 followers on his Facebook page.
Hello, Twitter! It's Barack. Really! Six years in, they're finally giving me my own account.
