POTUS has a new Twitter account — launched about six years into his presidency and two years after the FLOTUS Twitter account was launched.
Hello, Twitter! It’s Barack. Really! Six years in, they’re finally giving me my own account.
— President Obama (@POTUS) May 18, 2015
The account is separate from the @BarackObama account, which is run by the Organizing for Action staff and mostly includes quotes from the President’s speeches and his opinions on various political issues.
