On the morning of January 20, 2016, Wikipedia editors were not sure who to name the US president. The updates oscillated between President Obama and President Trump depending on the political affiliations of the source of information. The crowd still recognizing Barrack as the president until Trump inauguration sent information to the editors of their stand. Likewise, Trump supporters edited the crowd-sourced encyclopedia to show that Donald Trump was the president. The crowd supporting Obama argued that he was still the head of state until he handed over power officially to the president-elect that noon. Besides, the pro-Trump editors updated that he had become the president by 12.01 A.M.
Notably, Wikipedia acquires information from the encyclopedia. The members of the public can edit some of the information available in these pages. Some of the information put on the encyclopedia by the crowd was unauthentic and unreliable. This reason made it difficult for the Wikipedia editors to update their pages about the US president on an inaugural morning. However, the editors of Wikipedia had to rely on protected pages that cannot be manipulated by public.
