Twitter ‘Actively Preparing To Support The Transition’

The Hill reported, “President-elect Joe Biden will receive the @POTUS Twitter handle as soon as he is inaugurated to the White House in January regardless of whether President Trump concedes before then, Twitter announced Friday.”

“A Twitter spokesperson confirmed to The Hill that the tech giant is ‘actively preparing to support the transition of White House institutional Twitter accounts on January 20th, 2021,’ which also includes @whitehouse, @VP, @FLOTUS, and a number of other official accounts,” The Hill observed.

The report noted, “The process is being done in consultation with the National Archives and Records Administration.”

The Hill also reported, “Twitter also confirmed that staffers will meet with representatives from the Biden-Harris transition team in the coming months to review how the new administration plans to use its government-related accounts.”

Biden Fundraising Again – For Transition Fund

As of this writing, President Trump has not conceded the 2020 election and continues to pursue legal challenges in battleground states, where the campaign alleges discrepancies have been found.

The mainstream media has largely dismissed Trump’s concerns about voter fraud and has ‘called’ the presidential election for Biden.

With the election still technically in dispute, Team Biden is now using crowdfunding to help fund his transition.

“Here’s the deal: Because President Trump refuses to concede and is delaying the transition, we have to fund it ourselves and need your help,” said Biden in a tweet yesterday.
