Barack Obama tells 2.6 million Twitter followers he has never tweeted
Telegraph (U.K.) ^ | November 16, 2009 | Malcolm Moore

Posted on 11/16/2009 9:01:21 AM PST by Schnucki

Barack Obama left his 2.6 million fans on Twitter, the social networking website, bemused, disappointed and mildly irritated by admitting on Monday that he had never used the service himself.

"Let me say that I have never used Twitter," he told students in Shanghai. "I noticed that young people are very busy with these electronics. My thumbs are too clumsy to type in things on the phone."

During his election campaign, Mr Obama portrayed himself as "connected" to the people through Twitter and his ever-present blackberry phone.

Some of his more understanding fans asked if it was any real surprise that the president had little time to "tweet". "Did anyone really think he was posting on his own?" asked @Inap.

Others, however, complained that Mr Obama has a "verified account" which is supposed to prove that it is his own. "Unfollowing @BarackObama now. What a letdown!" wrote @bkuri.

Someday Obama’s groupies will figure out that honesty is not their idol’s strong suit.

Very disappointing. I thought that Al Gore invented the internet and Barry Hussein Soetero invented Twitter.

Obama uses his Blackberry for reading his instructions. He has no reason to use it as an output device. The people at the other end don’t care what he thinks.

Yes, the media attacked Sarah Palin for using twitter saying it was undignified and that she should be going through proper channels in the media (the same partisan press that hounded her non-stop during the 2008 campaign and continues to smear her and those in her family).

Anyone who thought Obama was actually entering these "tweets" himself is an idiot.

And anyone who thought Obama ever told a truth is seriously mentally ill.

the double standard is sickening. Palin (campaign) spend $150k on clothing yet we know nothing about OBama/Biden. Theres no curiousity at all. Maybe they spend $150k+ as well, but they get no criticism at all

"And anyone who thought Obama ever told a truth is seriously mentally ill."

Absolutely.

Dr. Charles Krauthammer once suggested that Raila Odinga's favorite cousin is a narcissist, and I believe the word of a seasoned psychiatrist like Dr. Krauthammer.

But what is deeply disturbing to me is not the pathological lying and narcissism oozing out of Raila Odinga's favorite cousin.

It is the mental illness oozing out of his followers that is the most distressing since there are so damn many of these sick people who identify neither with Americans or freedom in general.

That’s nothing, the big scandal of the Obama/Biden scampaign is that people spent nearly a billion dollars on an empty suit.

wait. i can hear it now:

“do you mean that barack hussein obama hasn’t been 120% honest with me, his young, loyal, and ignorant follower?”

someone should ask those who believed that he was twittering why the hamburger they get from the national chain never looks like it does in the commercial.

Can you believe anything that comes out of Obama's mouth? Why lie about not being able to use a Blackberry and send text messages? There is plenty of documented evidence that shows that this is a lie.

Haven’t his followers figured out that TOTUS does the twittering?

Seriously, these folks must have thought that he actually called them the night before the election reminding them to get out and vote. They couldn’t figure out why he kept talking even while they were professing their undying love.

Photographic proof that Obama lied when he said that he had previously been lying on that detail. I wonder what his reason would be for lying about whether his previous comments were lies. [Note: I may not need to change my tagline until 2012.]

Is that why he goes away so often - to cleanse and purge
his soul, to finally speak a little truth. I guess he
thought his idiot followers in U.S. would never hear!
