First Lady Michelle Obama's First Tweet

Saturday night at the White House Correspondents Association Dinner, First Lady Michelle Obama ventured into unfamiliar territory: the twitterverse. Prompted by CNN’s Ed Henry, Mrs. Obama sent her first tweet in the middle of the dinner from @edhenrycnn’s account.

"from flotus: 'here at dinner this is officially my first Tweet. i am looking forward to some good laughs from the potus and jay,” read the message, referring to both her husband and comedian Jay Leno’s remarks which followed shortly after.

After the dinner Henry blogged about not only coercing the First Lady, and White House press secretary Robert Gibbs, but the President himself into allowing the tweet.

Was it, "When's Dinner"?

Perhaps it was, "Has anybody seen my Boob Belt?"

Or, it could have been, "Why are there so many typical white people in this building?"

She should have tweeted:

“Got rid of Vera Baker, don’t have to worry about her messing with my man no more”

What's the difference between a toot and a tweet?

Were I her, I wouldn’t brag about my tweet. Not in public, anyway.

Remember when the media took Sarah Palin to task for tweeting?

I loathe the Pravda Media

Maybe she also wanted her village to keep an eye on her husband regarding other women?

Henry blogged about not only coercing the First Lady ... into allowing the tweet.

Uhhh, Ed?
You couldn't coerce the Linebacker into anything. She could squish you into the carpet with one hand while sipping Chardonnay and picking at the lobster with the other. Without getting a smudge on or a wrinkle in her usually inappropriate gown.

We hopefully will need new terminology in a couple years, how about "fdotus?"

Good God — ABC has degenerated from the semi-professionalism of Frank Reynolds, Howard K. Smith, and Peter Jennings to reporting about the FLOTUS’s first Tweet!!
