White House Lifts 40-Year Ban On Photos During Public Tours

The White House lifted a 40-year-old ban on taking photos during public tours of the executive mansion on Wednesday and invited visitors to share their shots on Twitter using ž#WhiteHouseTour.
First lady Michelle Obama announced the change in a video on Instagram. “If you’ve been on a White House tour, you may have seen this sign,” she said, holding up a sign reading “No Photos or Social Media allowed.” “Well, not any more,” Obama said as she tore up the sign, laughing.
