White House Social Media Archives Announced


Yesterday the White House announced a series of archival projects related to “the first Social Media presidency.” These include a searchable archive of over 250,000 social media posts from the Obama White House, a comprehensive collection of Obama GIFs, an interactive tool that analyzes White House tweets, and complete archives of the White House’s Twitter, Facebook, and Vine accounts. The Internet Archive will also be making White House social media data available on its website. You can read more about these projects here

In related news, the Internet Archive recently launched its Trump Archive, an ongoing project that already includes over 520 hours of video related to President-elect Donald Trump.
