Obama Finally Joins Twitter


After years of being bound to the occasional “-bo” sign-offs on the official @barackobama Twitter account (run by his political group Organizing for Action), President Barack Obama finally got his own personal account today!

The official word from the White House informs us the new account will serve as a  way for the president to “engage directly with the American people, with tweets coming exclusively from him.”

The shiny new @POTUS handle describes Obama as a “Dad, husband, and 44th President of the United States.” One probable mistake, though: He left his DM’s wide open.
