Obama to start tweeting - himself
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:
I guess none of his aides could ever add '- BO' to a tweet.
I don't tweet and I'm not on Facebook. But, then, I guess there are those who would consider me old. I'm not a Luddite by any means. I like technology when it benefits me. But I think both provide a little too much exposure. I prefer a modicum of privacy.
That said, in the case of the President, it could give him visibility with younger voters and, therefore, an edge against his competition, unless they do the same. Even if they do, the field is so crowded right now that it tracking the Republicans via Twitter or Facebook could be a bit too much 'noise'. Whereas the President would stand out, since he IS the President.
