Chrissy Teigen had something extra to celebrate on Jan 20 apart from the presidential inauguration. The TV personality found out that she is one of the 12 people the new US president, Joe Biden is following on Twitter.

Biden gained access to the official @POTUS Twitter account on Jan 20.

“The official @POTUS account now follows 11 people – all of them Biden aides or accounts, and then @chrissyteigen,” Wake Up To Politics newsletter author Gabe Fleisher tweeted.

Teigen responded: “OH MY GOD !!!!!!!!!! my heart oh my god lmao I can finally see the president’s tweets and they probably won’t be unhinged.”

In July 2017, Teigen was blocked by former president Donald Trump on Twitter after years of criticising and ridiculing him on the platform.

Teigen wasn't the only celebrity Trump blocked. He also blocked author Stephen King and actress Rosie O'Donnell.
