Press Secretary Gibbs on His Future & the Future of @PressSec

By The White House on 01/05/2011 – 12:36 pm PSTLeave a Comment

In today's edition of First Question, Press Secretary Robert Gibbs answered the flood of questions that came in over Twitter on what he's doing next, whether White House social media engagement will continue in his absence, and perhaps most important of all: what will become of his Twitter handle @PressSec:

The President released the statement below after Gibbs' announcement:

For the last six years, Robert has been a close friend, one of my closest advisers and an effective advocate from the podium for what this administration has been doing to move America forward. I think it’s natural for him to want to step back, reflect and retool. That brings up some challenges and opportunities for the White House – but it doesn’t change the important role that Robert will continue to play on our team.
