What happens to Trump's official Twitter account after Biden becomes POTUS?

It is been virtually 4 years since since our first “virtual” president passed over the presidential Twitter keys to Donald Trump.

Barack Obama’s transition from the Oval Place of business in 2017 was once the primary time many authentic Twitter accounts (and different social media pages on Instagram, Fb, Medium, and past) had been archived. On Twitter, different extra generic accounts like “@POTUS” had been handed onto Trump. 

After all, Trump has endured to make use of his personal Twitter as his primary verbal exchange software. That may probably stay lively after his one-term presidency, except he will get himself kicked off the platform. Twitter does not have it categorised as a U.S. executive account, however it’s verified.

Even so, now it is Trump’s flip to move alongside any authentic accounts handles whilst Twitter archives the the tweets from the previous management below separate “archived” handles, a l. a. Obama’s @POTUS44. That suggests the entire tweets from the previous 4 years can be preserved, simply in other places. 

Presidential accounts are set to change over to president-elect Joe Biden on Inauguration Day (although Trump nonetheless hasn’t conceded by means of then). The ones come with: , , , , , , , and . Different accounts like @StateDept can be handed alongside, however Trump management tweets will nonetheless be at the timeline (and searchable and commentable).

In accordance with the Nationwide Archives and Data Management procedure with Obama’s virtual transition, a number of accounts throughout the Trump management may also be converted to archive mode for viewing simplest on Jan. 20. No new feedback, posts or adjustments can be imaginable after that time. 

So tweets from Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, first girl Melania, 2nd girl Karen Pence, the click secretary, and different White Area officers will nonetheless be viewable, however on newly archived pages. The ones new handles have not been introduced but, however will most likely apply previous naming conventions — so Trump’s @POTUS account will most likely grow to be @POTUS45. Obama had 31 White Area officers with archived Twitter accounts.

Different authentic accounts just like the Office of National Drug Control Policy and the U.S. Chief Technology Officer can be archived and the handles cleaned for the following management. 

Underneath Obama all of those websites had been archived. However the Trump management has simplest maintained 4 (the primary ones indexed right here) of those accounts.
