Shortly after President Trump's inauguration, a Twitter account named "Rogue POTUS Staff" sprung up. The page is among several anti-Trump "rogue" accounts from federal organizations, such as the the "Alternate" National Park Service:

This newer profile joins a Twitter ecosystem where the National Park Service Twitter account came under fire last week for criticizing Trump administration. Soon after, federal agencies were ordered to restrict their social media communications.
The week-old Rogue POTUS Staff account, which describes itself as the "unofficial resistance team inside the White House" has already amassed over 400,000 followers. Many of their tweets detail what Trump allegedly says behind closed doors in the White House:
Pres. Trump doesn't quite understand the difference between being POTUS and being a business owner. Keeps asking "who says I can't?"

POTUS fully overwhelmed after full week on the job. Things spilling over into out of office lives for everyone.

The account asserts people running the profile must keep their identities secret in order to keep their jobs. They say that they "will block anyone who asks us to ID ourselves (including press), or who makes suggestions of violence." Whether the account has any validity is unclear.
