The account @BarackObama was launched in 2007, and the president initials tweets he writes himself with the letters BO.

directly with the American people, with tweets coming exclusively from him," reads an entry on the White House website blog.

"President Obama is committed to making his Administration the most open and participatory in history, and @POTUS will give Americans a new venue to engage on the issues that matter most to them."
