Michelle Obama Joins Twitter

Michelle Obama is on Twitter.

The First Lady made her debut on the popular microblogging service on Thursday, with the first tweet from her account reading: We're excited today to launch @michelleobama as a new way for you to connect with First Lady Michelle Obama and the President's campaign.

Although the account is run by the Obama2012 campaign staff, tweets from Michelle Obama will be signed with "mo" at the end.
