The 2012 Campaign Heats Up, President Obama To Start Tweeting From @BarackObama

Published by pratyushkp on June 22nd, 2011 - in Social, Technology

You’re about to see whole lot more Tweets from the President. President Obama’s Twitter account, @BarackObama, has been around for sometime, accumulated 8.6 million followers but he was rarely sending any Tweets himself-his staff did. Today, the President’s campaign posted a message notifying the public that his 2012 presidential campaign staff (Obama for America) will start managing his Twitter and Facebook accounts (which were previously managed by the DNC).

And Obama will be Tweeting regularly from @BarackObama, with the signature
“-BO.” Apparently both Facebook and twitter accounts will be posting daily updates from the campaign trail, from Washington, and more.
