Making waves earlier today, President Obama announced his personal Twitter online – using the handle @POTUS. This is separate from the White House Twitter account; while President Obama has personally signed off certain tweets, the White House Twitter account mostly is written and handled by the senior staff. Thus, President Obama becomes the first active president to take to Twitter with his own personal account.
Bill Clinton, the former President in the 1990s, smirked with a tweet clearly referencing his wife, Hillary Clinton, who is running for President.

Clinton is known for his sense of humor, but President Obama’s response was pretty stellar, linking the First Lady’s, personal twitter handle: @FLOTUS.

It will be interesting to see what comes out of President Obama’s Twitter, but his account is still pretty young. Follow him at @POTUS.
