Earlier this week, President Trump said he would be using his personal social media accounts, as opposed to the official accounts.

Agencies: The transition of agency websites is also a part of the digital transition between administrations. While each agency will have different digital teams, the WHCA will assist in their transitions as well. Some agencies have already removed certain content from their sites.

The site will be maintained by NARA ad beginning Friday, the agency will transition the following accounts and handles:

  • @WhiteHouse becomes @ObamaWhiteHouse

  • @VP becomes @VP44
  • @FLOTUS becomes @FLOTUS44
  • @DrBiden becomes @DrBiden44
