Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey explained a glitch that led some users to automatically follow the @POTUS account that was taken over by President Donald Trump Friday.

Dorsey said in a series of tweets (embedded below) that as part of the transition from former President Barack Obama to Trump, followers of @POTUS prior to Friday’s inauguration were slated to follow both @POTUS and @POTUS44, where the tweets from the Obama administration are archived.

However, more than 500,000 Twitter users who followed @POTUS44 after a certain time period were automatically set up to follow @POTUS due to the glitch.
