It was originally a code word used by telegraph operators; Barack Obama used it in his Twitter handle

Today’s Final Jeopardy Answer – Monday, June 5 2023

The Final Jeopardy Answer is: POTUS

Final Jeopardy Explanation – Monday, June 5 2023

The term POTUS, short for President of the United States, originally came into use as a telegraph code among operators. Later on, it became widely recognized and used in various contexts.

In 2009, the White House established its official Twitter account. However, it was during Barack Obama’s second term in 2015 that the @POTUS handle was created. This marked the first instance where a U.S. President had a unique social media account separate from the main White House account.

During his time in office, Barack Obama was identified by this @POTUS handle on Twitter. As per protocol, the handle is transferred to the current President, who is Joe Biden as of 2023.

There are comparable abbreviations for other senior U.S. government roles. For instance, SCOTUS stands for the Supreme Court of the United States, and FLOTUS represents the First Lady of the United States.
