Biden’s campaign team has more followers on Truth Social than the Trump team. 
Biden currently has 27,900 followers. Trump has 23,600 followers.
The Biden campaign said it joined Truth Social “because we thought it would be very funny.”

President Joe Biden’s campaign team account on Truth Social has more followers than Donald Trump’s team does.

The Biden campaign said on Monday that it had joined Truth Social “mostly because we thought it would be very funny.” A campaign official had previously told Axios, in a story published in May, that they wouldn’t be joining Trump’s platform.

The account, which uses the handle @BidenHQ, is gaining traction. As of press time, Biden’s campaign account had about 27,900 followers. Trump’s campaign account, @TeamTrump, had about 23,600 followers. Trump’s personal account, @realDonaldTrump, currently has over 6.45 million followers.

Trump launched the conservative social media site in February 2022. The former president said in October 2021 that he was creating his own social media platform after getting banned from platforms like TwitterFacebook, and YouTube following the January 6 Capitol siege. The site is estimated to have approximately 2 million active users, much lower than the billions of users that giants such as Facebook have.

On Monday, Biden’s campaign officials told Fox News Digital that joining Trump’s platform was akin to entering “the lion’s den to point out Republicans’ hypocrisy” while having “a little fun at their own expense.”

“Crooked Joe Biden and his team are finally acknowledging that Truth Social is hot as a pistol and the only place where real news happens,” a campaign spokesperson for Trump told Insider.

Representatives for Biden did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Insider sent outside regular business hours.
