Twitter has confirmed that the official US presidential accounts will be wiped of their millions of followers before being transferred to the Biden administration, APA reports citing BBC.

Mr Biden's team "fought" the plan, but the social media giant said its decision was "unequivocal".

The move marks a reversal from the last transition.

Twitter agreed to Donald Trump's request in 2016 to inherit Barack Obama's millions of followers.
