The account's cover photo, of miniature American flags being waved outside the Capitol during an inauguration ceremony, was taken during Obama's first inauguration, in 2009.

Shortly after the account was changed, Twitter users drew attention to the photo choice.

About an hour after it first went up, the photo was swapped out for an American flag picture and then later switched out for a photo of Trump himself.
