Elon Musk‘s Twitter account has officially surpassed 100 million followers. According to Social Blade, Musk gained 150,000 followers from June 26 – 27 which pushed him over the 100 million mark.

Another driver for this quick rise to nine digits came with his announcement of the acquisition of Twitter which increased his follower count by 25% in the last three months. However, despite reaching such a significant number of followers, Musk has been silent on Twitter since June 21.
