As part of the peaceful transition of power, Donald Trump took over the @POTUS account on Twitter. (Barack Obama can now be found at @POTUS44.) He hasn’t tweeted anything yet, but people are already noticing something funny about the account. The cover photo — a shot of a crowd of people on that National Mall waving American flags — is actually from 2009. Meaning, of course, the photo is from Obama’s inauguration and not Trump’s.

On the upside, because he’s been busy getting sworn in as president, Trump hasn’t tweeted yet.

Update: The account has since been updated and the cover photo is now an American flag.
