Despite the official White House Twitter feed being cleared except for a congratulatory message to Donald Trump, Obama has continued to express his last thoughts as president on his account, @POTUS44.

On Friday morning, he tweeted, "It's been the honor of my life to serve you. You made me a better leader and a better man."

He also said, "I won't stop; I'll be right there with you as a citizen, inspired by your voices of truth and justice, good humor, and love."
