In support of her husband’s reelection campaign, Michelle Obama learns to express herself in 140 characters.

The First Lady’s first tweet stated the obvious:

“We’re excited today to launch @michelleobama as a new way for you to connect with First Lady Michelle Obama and the President’s campaign.”

Even though the account is managed by the Obama;s campaign staff, it will still feature personal tweets from the First Lady herself. Her special messages will be signed with “-mo,” which is the counterpart signature used by , “-bo.”

The first non-campaign tweet by Mrs. Obama reads:

“Here’s something dear to my heart: the MLK Day of Service,” reads the fifth tweet sent by the account. “Will you join me to serve your community on Monday? http://OFA.BO/NTYQkR -mo”

The link directs to, a website encouraging people to serve their communities on Monday, January 16 in celebration of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.
