Prolific tweeter Donald Trump – whose social media postings have often proved controversial – now has his own Presidential Twitter account.

As the Republican was sworn into office, an official @POTUS – President of the United States – account appeared online.

Within 10 minutes, it had accumulated 3.6million followers.

Similarly a new account has been created for Vice President Mike Pence, with the simple handle @VP.

It is the handle which head of state Barack Obama used in his time in office.

It is unclear who will run the account, or whether the new President will continue to post on his personal account, which currently has 20.6million followers.

Departing President Obama, if he opts to continue tweeting to his 13.7million followers now he has left office, now has the Twitter handle @POTUS44.
