Twitter to Handover POTUS Handles to Joe Biden on 20 Jan

Twitter has recently announced that they will handover the @POTUS (President of the United States) social media handles to US President-elect Joe Biden after he is inaugurated on 20 January 2021.

The tweets posted during the Trump administration will be archived, and the account will be reset to zero tweets.

In a statement to The Hill news website, a Twitter spokesperson confirmed on Friday that the tech giant is “actively preparing to support the transition of White House institutional Twitter accounts on 20 January, 2021”, which also includes @WHITEHOUSE, @VP, @FLOTUS, and a number of other official accounts.

The spokesperson said: “The process is being done in consultation with the National Archives and Records Administration.”

Twitter has also confirmed that it’s staff will soon meet representatives from the Biden-Harris team to review how the new administration plans to use its government related accounts.
