President-elect Donald Trump has one of the most active and followed accounts on Twitter and when he is sworn in as president he will obtain another.
The @POTUS handle that was created in 2013 and is used by current President Barack Obama.
Incoming White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer told “Fox & Friends” on Monday which accounts Trump will use.
“I think he’ll probably be tweeting from both or whatever he chooses,” he said.
In much the same way our current president uses both @POTUS and @BarackObama
Spicer said the current administration is going to give the new one the Twitter handle because “they have to, it’s a government handle.”
“He understands the power of social media. He’s got 45-million plus people that follow on the various platforms that he controls. He understands the ability to go straight to the American people and have a conversation with them,” Spicer said, adding that the president-elect frustrates the media because they don’t get to filter his message.
“Is it filtered through you? Do you have to approve before he tweets?” host Abby Huntsman asked.
“Nobody approves anything that Donald Trump says,” Spicer aid. “We work for him. We serve him. Not the other way around.”
