Who Updates the President's Twitter?

For most of the White House, Twitter access is blocked because of security risks; but who is inside, tweeting for the President?

According to the Wall Street Journal, White House deputy press secretary Bill Burton told Mediaite’s Rachel Sklar that the president’s new media team, including director of new media Macon Phillips and online programs director Jesse Lee, update the White House Twitter feed.

HootSuite is enabled on White House computers for the new media team, he explained, but it is blocked on the remainder of White House computers for security purposes–though they’re working on getting those restrictions relaxed.

Individuals who work at the White House are not restricted from having private Twitter accounts.
