Twitter is the platform of the moment for breaking news, from Whitney Houston’s death to the assassination of Osama bin Laden – and the debut of Sunny, the 1-year-old female Portuguese Water Dog joining the Obama family in the White House.
The @whitehouse Twitter account introduced Sunny with a tweet Monday evening:

The @FLOTUS Twitter account tweeted a photo of Sunny and older brother Bo around the same time:
