barackWho don’t know Barack Obama – He is the forty fourth president of United States of America. He joined Twitter on 18 May 2015 with the user name @POTUS. As soon as he joined Twitter he had 1 million fans. That is really something incredible. American President Barack Obama broke the records on Twitter in just 5 hours and in the Guinness Book of World record also this record is counted that is “Obama had 1 million of followers in just 5 hours on the day he joined Twitter”. Currently Obama has 3.19 million followers.

Where there is a great leader there are millions of followers. The same is the case with Barack Obama. Twitter is a social platform where real life events are highlighted instantly in the trending topic as soon as they occur. Same happened when USA President Barack Obama joined Twitter. Once he declared on his Tweet that it is his official Twitter account and he is personally going to deal directly in this account, the news spread across the Twitter platform like a fire in the jungle. Barack Obama had Twitter account previously also, but it was not managed by him, his account on Twitter was in the name of The White house (@whitehouse) and Barack Obama (@BarackObama) and it was managed by the White House staff.

When this time he joined Twitter he officially tweets that it is Barack Obama and the tweets will be coming directly from the President. As soon as he twitted, reading his this tweet there was an anxiety amongst the people they almost raised their brows thinking is he really a president tweeting or someone has played a prank. But white house made it clear; they promised that the tweets from this account will be exclusively from the President – Barack Obama.

People saw this tweet of White House and could not stop themselves from following Obama. Obviously the prime reason was now they can directly communicate with the President of America himself. Getting a great chance to know from the horse’s mouth about what he thinks on particular happening of event or on any current issue. Also the platform gives it a fair chance to discuss or raise some issue directly to PRESIDENT OF AMERICA. Cool isn’t it.
