Obama reveals rooms where he lives in White House


02 November, 2016

President Barack Obama belted out the song Purple Rain as he handed treats to a child dressed as Prince at the White House trick or treat party on 31 October.

"This digital infrastructure is an asset not just for the next president but for all future presidents to build off of".

President Obama wants a "smooth transition" of social media between administrations.

All of Obama's tweets and posts on other social media sites will be preserved in the National Archives Electronic Era Archives. President Obama is the first president to utilize social media heavily, so what happens to all of those social media accounts when he has to hand off executive power to his successor?

When President Obama got his official Twitter account past year, @Potus, I wondered if the same thing would happen there.

With it being their final Halloween in the White House, the Obamas had a special treat for those who attended.

Washington, No. 17 Utah meet in Pac-12 showdown
The Cougars have won five in a row including Pac-12 wins over Oregon, Stanford, UCLA and Arizona State over the last four wins. Washington is the nation's most complete team, with no glaring weakness outside of, maybe, the kicking game.

With two of the most unpopular Presidential candidates in the history of USA elections now waging a dirty war against each other in order to be named the 45th POTUS, number 44 and his First Lady are now enjoying tremendously good press.

The Obamas decorated the South Lawn of the White House and welcomed more than 4,000 people for trick-or-treating, mostly from 15 Washington-area elementary schools and military families.

Because the Obama administration's digital history is so large and involves so many elements, the White House is also seeking input from the American people on ways to store it, share it and preserve it. The handle @POTUS will be made available to the 45th President of the United States on January 20. The incoming president, be it Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump, will take over existing social media accounts, which will be scrubbed of all timeline content, but retain its followers: 11.1 million on Twitter @POTUS, 50.4 million on Facebook, and 9.8 million on Instagram. According to the post, all photo and video content created during Obama's presidency will also go to NARA and be available there, as well as at platforms like Flickr, YouTube, and Vimeo, but under a different username.

Similar changes will take place with Obama's Facebook and Instagram accounts, along with other Twitter accounts, including Michelle Obama's @FLOTUS and Joe Biden's @VP accounts.

Obama's tenure in the White House was a watershed moment for USA politics and social media.
