ZDNet: Why all of Trump’s tweets and other social media posts must be archived for future historians

ZDNet: Why all of Trump’s tweets and other social media posts must be archived for future historians. “It is important to think of this as a historical issue and not a political one. Electronic records are still rather new to our history as a nation, couldn’t even have been conceived of by our founders, and aren’t represented fully in many of our older but still-active laws. But now that digital messages are so relevant to our lives, and have become the chief way we communicate, we need to make sure we don’t delete them, allow them to conveniently slip through loopholes, or let them be consumed by bit rot.”
