There’s not a blue check of authenticity yet, but I believe the place to go for tweets from Champ and Major Biden is @TheFirstDogs. Rumor has it they are not at the White House yet; they’re waiting for everything to calm down a bit.

Major, who was adopted from the Delaware Humane Society in 2018, will be the first rescue dog to live in the White House.
