The official Twitter account of the President of the United States will be automatically transferred to Joe Biden when he will be sworn in on the day of the inauguration, even though President Donald Trump has not admitted defeat in the presidential election.

The strategy Joe Biden hopes will lead to agreement in a post-Trump era President-elect Biden hopes the reputation he has as a deal maker will help him push an agenda in Congress. But skepticism about that outcome is high.“John, are you saying air strikes would not help the people in Srebrenica right now? Is that what you're telling me?” Biden, then a Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said as he pressed McCain, the Arizona Republican who died in 2018.

Twitter has signaled that it will hand the “@ POTUS ” account – reserved for the sitting US president – to Joe Biden , despite no winner President Trump continues to assert the election was stolen from him through widespread voter fraud, but while he and allies have launched a flurry of lawsuits across

As the major US media outlets project that Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden won the election held on 3 November and he is reportedly making his inauguration plans, the sitting president , Donald Trump, has refused to concede his loss, decrying large number of irregularities in the election

"As we did for the presidential transition in 2017, this process is carried out in close collaboration with the National Archives and Records Administration," the equivalent of the National Archives, he said. All tweets published on the accounts @ POTUS (“President of the United States”), @FLOTUS (“First lady” or First lady of the United States), @VP (vice-president) and other profiles officials will be archived. The accounts will then be reset and handed over to the new White House administration on the same day.

Donald Trump, who still has not admitted his defeat on November 3, has built his political figure on Twitter. He uses it to campaign, to be angry or rejoice, to attack opponents and to make official announcements. He mainly uses his personal account, followed by over 88 million subscribers, compared to over 32 million for @ POTUS. The official accounts were mainly used to retweet his personal account.

Since the election, he has repeatedly claimed on the platform that he won the election and that his Democratic opponent's victory was linked to massive fraud, without providing any evidence. Twitter has added warning messages to scores of its tweets, including "this election fraud claim is disputed."

Disinformation

Interventions considered abusive by the Republican camp, but insufficient by many Democrats and civil society, who have been protesting for years against this governance with tweets and against the exemptions enjoyed by politicians in terms of moderation of content on social networks.

Twitter is therefore facing great pressure to curb disinformation and conspiracy theories, especially those coming from the US head of state. Joe Biden, on the other hand, is a much quieter user of Twitter . He sent fewer than 7,000 tweets to his 19 million subscribers, compared to 58,000 for Trump.
