.. calling this another arena where regulatory oversight is lagging in the US. There are no clear rules requiring social content to be preserved by the National Archives, for example. It’s up to individual agencies to determine whether a Tweet or Facebook post is, in fact, part of the federal record. That leaves documenting history up to the whims of social media platforms. Case in point: In September, President Trump retweeted an account that Twitter has now identified as a Russian bot. But the Russian bot tweet the President responded to is no longer visible online, because Twitter has suspended it and more than 2,700 accounts linked to it.
Democratic Congressman Mike Quigley introduced the #COVFEFE Act in June, named after President Trump's infamous, and now deleted, middle of the night Twitter typo. It would expand the definition of presidential records to include social media.
