(Irish Times) – US president Barack Obama has finally got his hands on his own twitter account, racking up 1.68 million followers since Monday with a mere three tweets.
His twitter handle, @POTUS, stands for President of the United States and the account will be controlled by the president himself, rather than one of his backroom team.
His wife Michelle also has a similar official account with the handle @FLOTUS – First Lady of the United States.
Hello, Twitter! It's Barack. Really! Six years in, they're finally giving me my own account.
