He follows 65 people, surprisingly none of them are foreign leaders. "Hello, Twitter! It's Barack. Really! Six years in, they're finally giving me my own account," was Obama's first message on the micro blogging site on Monday.  Four hours later he made his second tweet about his visit to New Jersey. "In Camden today, seeing first-hand how smart policing is making the community safer while building trust," Obama tweeted.

His third tweet, which was in response to a tweet by former US President Bill Clinton attracted quite a bit of attention. "Welcome to @Twitter, @POTUS! One question: Does that username stay with the office? #askingforafriend," the former US President asked. Obama responded soon, saying, "Good question, @billclinton. The handle comes with the house. Know anyone interested in @FLOTUS?"
