Answer for Mayor's Twitter Account

Answered By:

The @MayorofLondon twitter account belongs to the Greater London Authority and it is up to the Authority to manage the handover to my successor. In the interests of security it is likely the login and password will need to be changed upon a change of Mayoral administration. The Authority will manage that migration.
