President Obama's re-election campaign is vowing President Obama will actually start tweeting himself. The @BarackObama account was active throughout the 2008 presidential campaign, but Obama himself did not use it. Obama's first ever real tweet came from the Red Cross twitter feed in January of 2010.
From our friends at Mashable:
(Mashable) - U.S. President Barack Obama will start regularly tweeting from his official Twitter account.
In an update Saturday, it was announced that the President's re-election staff would be managing his social media presence and accounts on Facebook and Twitter.
A rep also revealed that the Commander In Chief would be penning tweets of his own and that "on Twitter, tweets from the President will be signed '-BO.'"
