When President Obama left office, his transition team included his social media data with the materials they sent to the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA). Dr. Adam Kriesberg presents initial observations on the first social media presidency through the lens of its data, extracted from their native platforms. He offers potential solutions to address the preservation and access challenges to social media data.
