    Putin only follows 19 people on Twitter, and one of them has been dead for 5 years

    While no world leader uses Twitter quite like Donald Trump, it’s still an arena where power and prestige are distributed. A presidential follow counts for a lot.
    Russian President Vladimir Putin follows just 19 accounts from his English-speaking handle — and they’re a weird mix of politicians, many of whom are accused of corruption, and one of whom died in 2013. And no Trump.
    (The Russian account only follows his English account, the Russian government and his prime minister.)
