Obama to Start Tweeting Personally
Obama’s personally written tweets will all be signed off as “-BO”; the president’s Twitter and Facebook accounts will be managed by #Obama2012 staff.
As it stands, Obama is the third most-followed personality on Twitter with 8.7 million followers, behind pop culture icons Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber.
The President sent out a personal tweet on Father’s Day: “Being a father is sometimes my hardest but always my most rewarding job. Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there. -BO.”
“This change will give us new opportunities to make the most of these channels, using them not only to report what the President is doing every day but to connect to millions of supporters who will be driving this campaign,” the campaign team wrote on its website.
