President Obama finally gets his own Twitter account
After six long years in office, President Obama has got his own personal Twitter account. Will he use it? Only time will tell.
All hail, Barack Obama, the President of the United States has his own personal Twitter account. If this doesn’t send you over to Twitter in a frenzy to sign up for an account, then I don’t know what will.
Hello, Twitter! It's Barack. Really! Six years in, they're finally giving me my own account.

This isn’t the president’s first rodeo on the popular micro-blogging platform, he’s tweeted from the Whitehouse and other Barack Obama accounts in the past, usually signing his tweets with initials. But what makes this account different from all the rest is that he’s typing the messages out, as opposed to some intern or staffer.
Unfortunately for President Obama, the account will be passed onto the next person who occupies the office after the 2016 election.
