Donald J. Trump is now President Donald J. Trump, and with great power comes control of the @POTUS Twitter handle. But so far, Trump has decided to stick to his personal account, and has chosen to tweet out his inaugural message in 140-character form from @realdonaldtrump.

In a series of tweets published from his personal account shortly after the inaugural speech, Trump summarized his popular message for anyone not following the livestream:

 

As some people have already pointed out, part of that speech lined up a little too closely with Bane’s speech from the end of Dark Knight Rises.

Social media teams have already transitioned websites and social media accounts to the new administration. Trump’s policies are now up on the White House website, including an “America First” energy plan, “America First” foreign policy, and “Trade Deals that Work for All Americans.”

Notably, there’s no section on climate change one way or another, although reports that Trump has already “scrubbed all traces of climate change” from the White House website are misleading, as all of the previous administration’s policies have been deleted as a matter of course.

All of the previous administration’s tweets have been deleted from the official @POTUS account, which is currently empty. All of President Obama’s tweets have been archived at @Potus44, which is the same procedure used for all the official administration accounts.
