I was banking on the Facebook / Inauguration broadcast as the answer but that's only a direct 108,000 fans - though with great additional exposure (Most recent post has over 1,000 Likes for their last post).

Then Youtube channel - 2,000 videos uploaded, but strangely no mention of Twitter account... But as they seem to be relying on Twitter for their recent breaking news, maybe they're actively recruiting the followers of news Tweets??
