Donald Trump might find it a little harder to share his thoughts on Twitter (as opposed to having his social media team do it for him), as he was reportedly forced to give away the phone he prefers to use when he has messages to share on the service.
According to The New York Times, the President-elect had to replace his Android phone with a "secure, encrypted device approved by the Secret Service."
The NYT previously said Trump uses a Samsung Galaxy phone, and it's likely possible to distinguish tweets sent by Trump himself (as opposed to those sent by his team) by checking which are sent from an Android phone.

No details are available on the new, secure phone, apart for the fact that it comes with a new number. However, Gizmodo notes that Barack Obama was unable to tweet from his secure phone, which was described as being similar to a "play" phone for three-year-olds.
Trump, who is very active on Twitter, recently said he would continue tweeting on his personal account instead of the official @POTUS account. He doesn't really like it, though; in a recent interview on Fox News' Fox & Friends, Trump said Twitter is the "only way" he can counteract "dishonest media."
Besides his phone, Trump also had to abandon his Boeing 757 (sometimes called Trump Force One) for the Air Force One jet, which in his case might actually be a downgrade.
