The Trump @POTUS Twitter account uses photo from Obama inauguration
Although the @POTUS Twitter account changed hands from Barack Obama to Donald Trump a minute after noon Friday, Obama’s presence lingered for about an hour longer.
The Twitter header image on the unveiled account shows a crowd at an inauguration waving American flags.
That image is actually a photo Getty Image photo taken at Obama’s inauguration in 2009. It was taken by photographer Carter Dayne who made it available as a stock photo.
An hour later, the background image was changed – to a more generic US flag.
