President Barack Obama says he is now running his own Twitter account, @POTUS, but how different will it be from his other handles?By Ben Lawson | May 18, 2015
After six years in the Oval Office, President Obama finally decided he needed a personal Twitter account.
Monday, he sent out his first tweet from the @POTUS twitter handle saying, "They're finally giving me my own account." But why is this "finally" happening now?
A White House press release said, "@POTUS will give Americans a new venue to engage on the issues that matter most to them."
