The verified account already boasts 23,000 followers and follows a steady push on social media from the White House. 

Move aside Mr. President, Michelle Obama has joined Twitter.

Launched today, the verified @michelleobama account is run by her husband’s reelection campaign, but she will tweet occasionally. Much like the president’s account, tweets written by Michelle will end with “-mo.”

The First Lady already has 23,000 followers and follows five accounts, including that of her husband and her fitness initiative, Let’s Move.

Her first tweet? It's really not worth repeating. 

Of course, this isn’t the White House’s first dip into the social media pool. Barack’s campaign joined Tumblr in Oct., registered for FourSquare earlier this summer, and signed up for an Instagram account last week.

That’s great and all, but we’re still waiting for Michelle to join us on Tumblr.

Al-Seba’i is a Sunni scholar who fled to London after he was sentenced in an Egyptian court to 15 years in prison for being a part of the Egyptian Islamic Jihad. The United Nations considers the group to be an affiliate of al Qaeda.
