According to the site Factba.se, which uses tools to measure the activity of a Twitter account, Trump reached an all-time high of 88,964,791 followers as of November 17. A day later the president’s account began to suffer consecutive losses of followers.

This represents the first big drop in five years since he announced his candidacy for the presidency. Before mid-November the president’s account had never experienced a loss of followers for more than two consecutive days.

Trump has used social media like no other politician. Until this Saturday, the president’s account had 88,740,095 users registering a decrease of more than 220,400 from mid-November. Despite the numbers, Trump’s personal account remains the sixth most followed profile on the social network.
