The database Voxgov provides access to social media feeds, press releases, publications, and documents from all branches of the federal government.It is updated in real-time. Voxgov includes content from individual representatives and agencies officials.  Available to current AU students, faculty & staff, Voxgov is accessed from the library's homepage > Research Assistance > Search Databases > V >Voxgov

.A sample search on 3/2021:
Voxgov has 10,647 tweets attributed to Trump. (Search realDonaldTrump, limit to social media -> limit to twitter -> limit to source (Frm.) US President Donald Trump. So even though the account is suspended and not available, the tweets themselves live on in this platform. VoxGov pulls in stats on shares (retweets) and likes, but I can't find any notation or capture of twitter administrative flags or warnings, so it won't help sort which tweets meet the users criteria. I'm attempting to attach a screen capture of how a tweet would appear in voxgov. This is one I believe twitter would have flagged, but there is no indication of that on the capture.
