Michelle Obama Debuts New Look on New Twitter Account

Michelle Obama Bangs Twitter

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.

Cheers to the Commander in Chic!

    This new hairstyle does not frame her face nicely at all. Me no likey. But happy belated.!!:)

  • gmarie

    Loving it. Youthful, bounce and shine.

    Extenisons are ok but I hate wigs and sewins that cover women entire head. It looks clownish on young women kind of like a man with a perm. Are there any men who like this sh*t?

    She is at the age, I guess, of wigs but your the FLOTUS with a hair stylist on staff. This (wigs) is getting out of hand. lol I guess next we’ll see Oprah with a dam wig on her head.

    I wonder if this will be a legacy account that continues with the next FLOTUS in 4 years…If people are still tweeting in 4 years.

    FLOTUS is looking fabulous as always. I like her new hairstyle. I think Mrs. Obama can easily pass for her mid 30′s.

  • Chillyroad

    It’s youthful and fun. I like it.

  • Bosslady

    Love Michelle, she has beautiful, healthy looking hair, however, this style doesn’t suit her face, quite distracting….Nevertheless – Belated Happy Birthday!!

    I’m confused, is there some unwritten rule that everyone is suppose to act like we don’t know when a black woman has a dam wig on her head? lol

    OMG my head is going to explode!!!! Bangs!!! She looks so adorable I’m just dying. She is my fashion and behaviour role model and now she is just too cute! I love her :)

  • jpw

    Might not be a wig but it looks like one to me. Still love her style just not this hair style.

  • mrie

    Im confused, do you know Michelle personally, have felt her hair line to make such an ill-informed comment?

  • Tatty Coram

    No matter what she does she is still ugly!!!! Has she thought about getting dome dental work done?

    And we have to look at this for another 4 years!!!

  • dee

    Looks good!

  • KD

    Ewwww! Barf!

  • Mademoiselle

    So far every pic I’ve seen of this style looks like a wig to me too.
