First Lady Michelle Obama is out with the old and in with the new. Yesterday, Mrs. Obama celebrated her 49th birthday with a new Twitter handle, @FLOTUS, and a new hairstyle — bangs!
The FLOTUS account, which is the acronym for First Lady of the United States, is run by the First Lady’s office. The Obama campaign runs her other Twitter account, @MichelleObama, but just as with that account, she will sign all of her own tweets with the initials “mo.”
Mrs. Obama received 8,000 new followers within 45 minutes of her first tweet, many of whom wished her a happy birthday.
According to reports, the First Lady also celebrated her birthday with President Obama and friends over dinner at Cafe Milano in Georgetown.
