President Obama just started his own personal Twitter account, and this is his very first tweet:
Hello, Twitter! It’s Barack. Really! Six years in, they’re finally giving me my own account.
— President Obama (@POTUS) May 18, 2015
Using the Twitter handle @POTUS (I mean…duh), the President of the United States has gone ahead and started his very own Twitter account. Sure, you may already be following @BarackObama on Twitter, but that account was designated initially for his campaign and currently for those on the White House staff. Both that initial account and the White House Twitter account have confirmed that @POTUS is indeed President Barack Obama himself:
Welcome @POTUS, the official government account of the President of the United States.
— Barack Obama (@BarackObama) May 18, 2015
— The White House (@WhiteHouse) May 18, 2015
According to an official statement released from the White House, the new @POTUS account will be the first Twitter account with solely President Obama’s words.
