Guinness world records’ website said on Tuesday that the US president Barack Obama has set a new record on Twitter with his new Account @POTUS that reached more than one million followers within a span of five hours.

Obama broke the previous record that was made by an actor Robert Downey Jr., who got to the one-million followers in 23 hours and 22 minutes in April 2014.

The president has another Twitter account @BarackObama that he uses for campaigning and the messages that were made by the president so far, marking with initials ‘BO’ to differentiate the tweets that are made by the staff.
