Prominent Right-wing tweeters have noticed their follower counts shoot up since Elon Musk took over, sparking allegations their accounts had been suppressed by woke Twitter staffers.

In the meantime, leading Left-wing figures, including Barack Obama and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, have witnessed huge slumps since news of Musk’s purchase.

Donald Trump Jr, who has 7.7 million followers, witnessed his followers rise by 87,296 on Tuesday and proposed that the increase was because of an algorithm tweak targeting prominent Conservative voices ahead of Musk’s arrival.

He tweeted: “While I’m awesome and totally deserving of 87,000 new followers a day it seems that someone took the shackles off my account. Wonder if they’re burning the evidence before new management comes in.” Don Jr’s account had increased by between 5,000 and 10,000 tweets a day in recent weeks, with the spike immediately obvious in the wake of Musk’s statement.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis now has 141,566 followers on Twitter, according to SocialBlade statistics. That is an extensive rise on the 5,000-or-so followers the popular GOP governor generally gains in the average day. He embraced Musk’s bid for Twitter, describing it as “a good deal for shareholders’ and saying it ‘raises the prospect that the platform will be a place where free speech can thrive, not a tool for narrative enforcement.”

Conservative talk show host Dana Loesch, who’s long complained of account suppression, noticed her followers surge by roughly 9,000 on Tuesday. By comparison, she was getting a few hundred new followers a day before Musk’s acquisition. Florida Governor Matt Gaetz enjoyed a 21,430 follower boost on Tuesday - multiple times higher than the roughly 500 new followers he gains every day.

Conversely, Liberal politicos saw their follower numbers slump in the wake of the Musk statement. New York congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez - who has 12.9 million followers - witnessed 20,725 people stop following her Tuesday.

Before Musk bought Twitter, she attracted roughly 1,000 new followers every day and is widely regarded as one of the most prominent progressive voices. Ocasio-Cortez’s fellow Progressive “squad” member - Representative Ilhan Omar of Minnesota - witnessed her followers decrease by 10,097 Tuesday. That contrasts with the hundreds or even thousands of new followers she previously gained on any given day.

And former President Barack Obama - who tops the Twitter global leaderboard with 131.7 million followers, ended up with 5,063 fewer followers than before Musk’s announcement. While that figure is a drop in the ocean compared to his vast Twitter audience, it sits markedly differently from the 15,000-20,000 new followers Obama previously attracted on any given day.
