Though Donald Trump doesn’t concede that he has lost the US Presidential election, Twitter will hand over the @POTUS account to Joe Biden on January 20, 2021.
Donald Trump continuously claiming that he has won the US election, at the same time Twitter declared that it will transfer the ownership of the @POTUS account to President-elect Joe Biden when he is sworn in on Inauguration Day.
The @POTUS account is the official account of the US President and is totally separate from that account that Trump uses to tweet.
An official spokesperson for Twitter in a statement to The Verge said, “Twitter is actively preparing to support the transition of White House institutional Twitter accounts on January 20, 2021, as we did for the presidential transition in 2017, this process is being done in close consultation with the National Archives and Records Administration.”
Along with the POTUS other official accounts: @whitehouse, @VP, and @FLOTUS will change the ownership and will be handed over to the new US administration.
It is quite clear that Biden has won the US election, still, Trump is continuously refusing about Biden’s victory and tweeting that he has won the election.
On the other hand, Trump will continue to run his personal account @realDonaldTrump, after Biden’s swearing-in. But all the special protection that Trump got as a world leader will be removed and his Twitter account will be treated like the majority of the normal users on the Twitter platform.
Why it is required to transfer the @POTUS account to Joe Biden?
Trump has fought Biden’s triumph, despite the fact that outcomes delivered by political decision authorities unmistakably give the rush to Biden. GSA, the government office answerable for setting off the beginning of the formal official change measure, has up to this point declined to do as such. That has postponed the Biden group’s admittance to everything from office space and to government email addresses and even obstructed them from utilizing the .gov area to have an official progress site.
However, even should Trump keep on challenging his misfortune and battle his expulsion from the White House on Jan. 20, he won’t have a state in whether he holds tight to one of the administration’s primary advanced resources.
The dynamic is an impression of the immensely important job Twitter has played in American legislative issues in the Trump period, and the extensive force the organization uses.
