I can't tell if this an authentic/official twitter feed of a real military/government organization or not.

In case it is, here's the image in particular:

Air Force One is supposed to be a flying office building.
That's a spiffy 3d render, but I doubt it would have enough space inside to fit the job requirements.

That's exactly what I was thinking. The Concord was notoriously cramped.

Modern 'computers' use twenty percent fewer vacuum tubes, than models just a few years ago did. The computer and diesel generator to run it should only take up half of the space in the body.

I doubt this is intended to replace the 747 models. Air Force One is just a call sign obviously. I expect this would be used for short quick trips rather than long overseas extended visits. Think the quick trip to and from Iraq during thanksgiving to eat with the troops the presidents frequently do. Anything that's a prolonged trip to hit multiple countries would likely use the bigger jet.

I think those are to supplement the Gulfstreams and other executive jets that are used by the Air Force to shuttle around cabinet and sub-cabinet officials.  Like the SecState going to a UN meeting in Geneva, or deputy SecDefs going to NATO HQ or South Korea.

The real question is how much use will they get with all the restrictions on areas you can go supersonic due to the sonic boom. Wasn't that one of the many reasons the concord died? It could literally only be used effectively in transatlantic flights.

I think it is also holding 2 shotguns....

Don't forget that the Concord is super expensive to maintain and also can blow up (and did) because of a design flaw.

How much space does he need? All he does is tweet and talk on the phone.

This would be a new aircraft, the rendering may look similar but it is actually different in a number of ways. Such as the engine configuration.

I'm actually trying to think back to Boeing's original super sonic airliner design to remember if it had a similar engine setup. It never made it off paper but the US had its own competing design at the time before they scrapped it because they realized the concord and the Soviet TU-144 would beat them to the chase and wanted to save face by  pretending we weren't interested any longer.

Yes boeing decided capacity over speed.  Which is why they cornered the market for years.
Iirc concorde was massively over budget, and was only possible because it was a govt funded endeavor by two countries.

...IIRC, this design is supposed to be able to go supersonic without a sonic boom - it's been known to be possible for a while now, but i don't think anybody's actually proven  it yet.

Well that describes a lot of diplomatic missions.  DC supersonic to the European coast, then cruise a few hundred miles to Geneva or Brussles.  DC to Seattle subsonic, then refuel and go supersonic to Tokyo, Seoul, or Canberra.

You wouldn't use this for the secretary of the interior to fly from DC to Colorado Springs.

Lots of companies have been doing research into how to mitigate the sonic boom problem that plagued the concord. Gulfstream has been testing what they call the "quiet spike" to mitigate some of the effects of a sonic boom. Its basically a giant needle that extends past the nose of the plane and has a slanted nose to deflect the majority of the boom upwards.

For the people wondering if it's a real government Twitter page, it's not. It's an obvious photoshop. The photo of the jet in flight is the same as from a news story Boom Aero posted on their feed 6 days ago.

The one of the jet in the Hangar looks like the Boom Twitter page's top profile photo.
