WASHINGTON (CNN)– President Barack Obama’s wired White House is now in the seven figures category on Twitter.
“A million followers – nice,” the White House (@whitehouse) wrote in a short blast - known as a “tweet” - that was sent out Sunday afternoon. “What would you like to see more of from this feed? Photos? Quotes? Cowbell? Tell us @whitehouse.”
In crossing the 1 million-follower threshold on Twitter, the Obama administration official account still trails behind Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain, Obama’s opponent in the 2008 elections.
But when you take into account all of the followers on Obama’s Twitter accounts, McCain is looking at the president’s back. Obama’s presidential campaign Twitter account (@BarackObama) has more than 2 million followers.
