First Lady Michelle Obama Joins Twitter

To celebrate her 49th birthday, FLOTUS Michelle Obama officially joined the Twitters.

Wonder what her handle is?

Michelle Obama will be tweeting as @FLOTUS.

The handle jumped to more than 15,000 followers in the two hours after it sent its first tweet Thursday morning, and the number continues to climb.

According to the Twitter profile’s bio, Mrs. Obama’s staff will manage the account. Tweets sent by the social media-saavy First Lady herself will be signed “-mo.”

Back in January 2012, Michelle Obama joined Twitter as @MichelleObama – but this new account flouts her FLOTUS status and will provide intel directly from her office.

A few topics we hope to hear about from the FLOTUS Twitter stream:

-How to get killer triceps

-How to grow delicious green beans

-How to rock an A-line dress

Anything you want to encourage Mrs. O to get her tweet on about? Let us know below.
