Yesterday America's First Lady, Michelle Obama, joined Twitter. For the briefest of moments MyDaily had more followers than she. Sadly she is now marginally in the lead with just over 232,000 to our 7,700.
The First Lady's first tweets were all business:
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.

The feed will largely be maintained by campaign staff but we can also expect the odd personal message, just check for an "-mo" signature to see which ones those are.
So far it's been tweets about healthcare and things and yeah, yeah, it's very worthy stuff but in a guilty sort of way we're also keeping our fingers crossed that she tweets a few Instagrammed pictures of couture outfits taken in the bathroom mirror of the White House.
That would be all kinds of awesome.
We would also settle for adorable Twitter banter between the President and the First Lady - so far it's been a bit tame:
It's not every day we get to welcome the First Lady of the United States to Twitter-happy to have you, @MichelleObama!
