Trump’s fleeting tweets alarm archivists

Politico reports that some, but not all, of the tweets from @realDonaldTrump show up on the official Twitter handle @POTUS. The article also says, “Trump’s aides have also used their own unofficial Twitter accounts to speak to voters. And on occasion, both the president and his advisers have scrubbed posts after they’ve gone up — raising questions, according to archivists, about what should and will be preserved at the end of his administration.”
