Obama’s Twitter name for the last several years has been @POTUS. As the White House transitioned from Obama to Trump, the Twitter account was part of the transition.

All tweets from Obama’s presidency are archived under a new Twitter name @POTUS44. Twitter automatically switches all the 13 million followers of the Obama-presidency @POTUS to follow @POTUS44 and the @POTUS account for Trump.

CEO Jack Dorsey explained why.

However, some people discovered they were following the new POTUS without having followed @POTUS. People who followed the archived @POTUS44 were also set to follow.

Trump will still keep his personal @realDonaldTrump account and Obama is reusing his personal @BarackObama account.
