Twitter will transfer the @POTUS account to Joe Biden on January 20, regardless of whether President Trump concedes the election, Twitter announced on Friday.

Tweets by the Trump administration will be archived, and the account will be reset to zero tweets.

The site will also transfer other government accounts, including @whitehouse, @VP, and @FLOTUS, on January 20.

Twitter staffers will meet with Biden's transition team in the coming months to discuss how Biden's administration plans to use its government accounts.

The National Archives and Records Administration is consulting with Twitter on the transfer process.
