Archiving and Updating the @WhiteHouse Account

On January 20, 2017, Instagram renamed and archived the contents of the @WhiteHouse account under the new account name @ObamaWhiteHouse.

Instagram gave the @WhiteHouse account to the incoming Administration, and is in the process of duplicating its followers. This means that someone following @WhiteHouse before the transition on January 20, 2017 would now be following both @ObamaWhiteHouse and @WhiteHouse.
