First Lady of the United States tweets first on iPhone

First lady first tweet on iPhone

During the White House Correspondents Association Dinner, First Lady of the United States Michelle Obama sent out her first tweet, via CNN's Ed Henry. After light-hearted negotiations and getting clearance from the top -- the very tip top -- Henry typed the tweet out on his iPhone on Mrs. Obama's behalf:

"from flotus: 'here at dinner this is officially my first Tweet. i am looking forward to some good laughs from the potus and jay'".

POTUS, of course, would be President of the United States. Jay would be Leno, the one who cost Coco his happy.

The story is almost Sorkian and worth a read, so check it out via the link below.

I went to @flotus on Twitter and it's actually a person impersonating Michelle Obama... It's pretty hilarious though.

What happened to wearing bow ties while wearing tuxedo jackets? Sheesh!

B says:

Now on to the important things, why is Ed Henry's tie about 6 inches too long?

James says:

And why is it pink? It's like he's trying to say, I'm here all formal and stuff, but don't take me seriously because I can't pick out a tie on my own or tie it anywhere near the correct length.

Wrecking our nation . . . one tweet at a time.

My husband and i ended up being so joyful when Edward could round up his researching by way of the ideas he made through the weblog. It's not at all simplistic to simply possibly be giving freely things that many other folks have been making money from. And we also take into account we need the writer to be grateful to for this. All the explanations you made, the simple web site menu, the friendships you can assist to promote - it is mostly superb, and it's really leading our son in addition to our family feel that the subject is interesting, which is certainly extraordinarily fundamental. Thanks for all the pieces!
