Obama Tweets 'Happy New Year' With Family

The back of Obama's head is perhaps the most famous profile on social media and looking to the latest Twitter shot of the US President, it shows no sign of shrinking into the shadows.

A picture of Barack Obama and his wife Michelle silhouetted against New Year fireworks was retweeted over 12,000 times after being posted from the President's twitter account late last night.

Another tweet, of the President with his family, was posted by the Obama Inauguration ‏earlier on Tuesday. This happy family shot received a mere 55 retweets.

Of course, it's a much less popular twitter account, with only 30,000 followers to Barack's 25m. Still, the sentiment behind the message remained: "Wishing you and your loved ones all the best in 2013. Happy New Year."
