All of Obama's tweets and posts on other social media sites will be preserved in the National Archives Electronic Era Archives. All will be accessible in the same manner as all other presidential records, the White House said. This also will be true for other Twitters names such as @WhiteHouse, @FLOTUS, @PressSec and @VP; those also will have "44" appended to their handles.
Obama's WhiteHouse.gov website will be preserved on the web, archived through the National Archives Records Administration (NARA). It will be frozen after Jan. 20 and made available at ObamaWhiteHouse.gov. This is similar to the procedures used by Obama's previous two predecessors, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, on their websites.
According to Buzzfeed, Donald Trump (@realDonaldTrump) and Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) have collected 12.8 million and 10.1 million followers respectively, while @POTUS has 11.1 million. Neither candidate has commented on how they would handle the digital transition of power, or if they would continue to post from their current accounts, Buzzfeed reported.
