FLOTUS Joins Twitter

Michelle Obama is tweeting. Actually it’s the President’s campaign staff that will be doing most of the tweeting. But any posts with the “-mo” attached will come directly from the First Lady. This is the similar policy for the President’s account.

The President introduced Michelle to the Twitterverse this morning (so cute, these two!), and the account will serve as a way to connect to voters and Obama supporters. Her Twitter handle has launched in the wake of discussion surrounding the new book The Obamas, which, based on media accounts, seems to focus quite a bit on the First Lady. Michelle Obama made an appearance yesterday on GMA to talk about her image.

“I just try to be me, and my hope is that over time people get to know me, and they get to judge me for me,” she said.
