POTUS Reporting For Duty…….On Twitter

Barack Obama

Mr. President, you are a bit late to this party, But your first tweet shows clearly that you know that. Better late than never!

The President’s first tweet on Twitter

Regardless of where any one of us stands politically, this could be a very interesting account to follow. The first question coming to my mind was if this account will be linked to the person of Barack Obama or transfer over to the next President of the United States……and, as it happened, Bill Clinton asked that exact question in a tweet!

Welcome from Bill Clinton

His answer ” Good question @billclinton. The handle comes with the house. Know anyone interested in @FLOTUS?”

After only a mere three tweets the President’s account has 1.4 million followers! He himself follows 65 accounts, mostly colleges and their sports teams as well as many departments of the U.S. government.

In a very short time there have been many interesting comments, funny requests and questions tweeted at the President.
