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.
Hello, Twitter! It's Barack. Really! Six years in, they're finally giving me my own account.

“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!
