Obama has found a new Internet home

Obama has found a new Internet home
Twitter

President Barack Obama is more wired than any previous holder of the U.S. top office, and you can bet the next one will be even more active on social media. But after more than six years The White House, Obama still didn't have a Twitter account - until now.

The president has officially sent his first tweet from the handle @POTUS, but not from his own phone. The catch is that for security reasons, Obama needs to use a BlackBerry.

“I can’t use phones with recorders in them,” Obama told Jimmy Kimmel back in March. “So a lot of the newfangled stuff, for security reasons, I don’t get.” But now, those days are done and Obama is free to tweet all he wants ... assuming he has a trusted friend nearby who will let him use their phone. Check out this exchange between Obama and former president Bill Clinton.

This might end up being a lot of fun!
