Michelle Obama Joins Twitter

Barack Obama really didn't introduce his wife to the Twitterverse this morning, his campaign staffers did. In fact, she hasn't even tweeted yet. According to the bio on @Michelleobama's, "This account is run by #Obama2012 campaign staff. Tweets from the first lady are signed -mo." The president sports a similar one on his Twitter account. And when you think about it, the interactions between the two in the Twitterverse run the chance of becoming sort of weird because the two accounts might just be two (possibly more or possibly fewer) campaign staffers talking to each other while using President Obama and the first lady as their Twitter puppets. Notice, there's no "-bo" signature here. 


Nor is there an "-mo" signature here (not that there should be).

Like we said, the lack of Michelle Obama's personal tweets probably won't make a big difference. She has over 3,100 followers already (campaign staffers sent out her first tweet at 8:00 a.m.). And of course, we're going to start following her campaign staffers her.
