President Biden is now posting into the fediverse


The official US president Threads account, currently helmed by President Joe Biden, has begun using Meta’s ActivityPub integration, making Biden the first sitting US president to post on the decentralized networking protocol. If you want to follow the President’s posts, but don’t want to leave Mastodon, you can follow @potus@threads.net.

Here’s the account as viewed from the official Mastodon client:

Biden may not be able to see replies and follows as they pour in from the fediverse — and with some servers blocking connections to Meta, not everyone there will be able to see his posts — as those features weren’t part of Threads’ integration when it opened up beta testing last month. But his posts are available, and he’ll see likes coming in from there. Or whoever is running the Presidential Threads account will, anyway.

So far, only Biden’s official POTUS account appears to have toggled Threads’ fediverse integration on. Neither Dr. Jill Biden’s nor Vice President Kamala Harris’ accounts showed up in a search. And none of them appear to have joined Bluesky yet, a competing decentralized social network running on its own AT protocol that recently opened general signups.
