Be careful what you tweet to the newest tweeter on the block. White House spokesman Robert Gibbs says what you tell him could end up in the presidential records forever.
The President Records Act, which requires administrations to archive information, applies to all of Gibbs’ tweets and some of the responses he receives, Gibbs told reporters Wednesday.
“What I write and what I tweet is archived as a part of this Presidential Records Act of 1978 because it is work product created as part of my job at the White House,” he said. “People that follow me, people that read that, people that re-tweet that, none of that goes into this or is archived as a result of the Presidential Records Act.”
“The only thing that would be archived other than what I produce is if you respond directly to me and only me,” he added. “It’s analogous to sending an e-mail to the White House, which is already archived.”
But the disclosure raises one question: Who will want to read Gibbs’ tweets decades from now?
