After being in office for less than a week, Joe Biden has already been caught in scandal after scandal. The Biden administration seems to have found a partner in Big Tech to hide the unpopularity of the new president.
Big Tech and the Biden team seem to be working together to manipulate his likes on YouTube and his follower count on Twitter.
Follower Count Manipulation?
The Gateway Pundit reports: “Twitter appears to be creating fake accounts to follow Biden and give his ostensibly dismal popularity a boost, in yet another pitiful attempt to convince the world that the scandal-plagued Democrat won the presidential election by an unprecedented and unrealistic 81 million American votes.”
One Twitter user shared her concerns about the unrealistic increases in Biden’s followers. “Joe’s been getting 100,000 followers on twitter every day! Except they’re ALL FAKE!!” Bre Wylde wrote.

“If you go to Joe Biden’s followers, I’d say at least 70 percent of them all joined [Twitter] in January and have zero followers,” she says in the video attached to her tweet, as she clicks on different accounts that follow Biden. Several of the profiles she examines seem to prove her point: their profiles show 0 followers and a join date of January 2021.
Joe Biden has around 6.3 million followers on Twitter. Around the time he was suspended from Twitter, President Trump had approximately 88.7 million followers.
YouTube has been caught manipulating the view counts on Biden’s videos. Since the inauguration, every video posted to the White House’s official YouTube channel has received significantly more dislikes than likes.
As of January 26, a video of Biden’s inauguration has received 68,000 dislikes and just 14,000 likes, as seen in the screenshot below.
It may be that the large difference between the number of likes and dislikes on that particular video was too much for YouTube to be able to manipulate without being caught, but clearly they have found other videos to manipulate.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki’s first press conference on January 20 received significantly more dislikes than likes, until YouTube decided to step in.
Around four hours after the first screenshot was taken, showing 10,000 dislikes and only 1,800 likes, the numbers changed to 2,500 likes and 3,100 dislikes.
The comment section was also disabled on the official White House YouTube channel, preventing the American people from being able to respond to videos posted by the president.
The double standards are obvious. President Trump was prevented from blocking people on his Twitter account after a ruling from a federal appeals court, but Biden is allowed to disable comments with the blessing of the left and Big Tech.
