When Obama became president in 2008, his role came with a brand new Twitter account @POTUS. However, this election season will mark not only a peaceful transfer of power in The White House, but online as well. According to The White House on January 20, 2017, the @POTUS account will be given to the new President to use, while all of Obama’s previous tweets on the account will be moved to his new, official Former President account at @POTUS44. The same goes for Michelle Obama’s @FLOTUS account, which will be given to the new First Lady (or First Gentleman, in which case the handle may be @FGOTUS) and all previous tweets transferred to @FLOTUS44. So all current followers of POTUS and FLOTUS will automatically follow whoever wins the election on November 8.
