Mr. Obama’s avatar of his Twitter account changed from his official White House photo to him smiling with his 2012 campaign logo resting along the base, as U.S. President Barrack Obama has decided to take an active role in Twitter.
Mr. Obama will tweet regularly from the popular social media service and his personal tweets will be signed “-BO”.
Early Friday evening, Mr. Obama tweeted personally welcoming followers to “a new (at)Barack Obama and from now on (has)Obama2012 staff will manage the account.
The website constituted for his campaign stated that the changes, “will give us new opportunities to make the most of these channels, using them not only to report what the president is doing every day but to connect to the millions of supporters who will be driving this campaign.”
With 8.69 million fans, Mr. Barack Obama is the third most-followed account among Twitter users and trails only Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber.
