In his first tweet, White House Press Secretary sought advice from the Twitterverse.
Washington (CNN) – It's the dirty secret of celebrity tweeting: Many politicians and other high-profile types don't clack out their own tweets.
Even President Obama has conceded that his fingers are not behind his Twitter account: @BarackObama.
Not Robert Gibbs.
The White House press secretary was asked during his daily press conference on Tuesday if he really tweeted from his new account.
"Inexplicably, yes," Gibbs said.
Gibbs started tweeting under the name @PressSec on Saturday and follows 149 people – mostly journalists. "I've enjoyed watching you all comment on women's figure skating and ski jumping," Gibbs told the reporters.
@PressSec prominently states that it is an official White House Twitter account, thus "comments & messages" could be archived under the Presidential Records Act.
CNN Radio's Bob Costantini asked Gibbs if his account, including the accounts he is following, are really part of White House records. Gibbs said he was unsure and would "check with the lawyers."
