Michelle Obama joins the Twitterverse

(CNN) - First lady Michelle Obama has officially joined the millions of people around the world who tweet.

Her handle, @MichelleObama, will be managed day-to-day by the Obama 2012 campaign, and like her husband's account, most of her tweets will be generated by the campaign staff. The tweets she personally sends will be signed with a "-mo" at the end.

    This is earth shaking news. Or just a WH press release?

    It is refreshing to finally have a story that does not involve the lying limp wristed flip flopper from MA, Mittens.

    If Michelle Obama is now going to enter the political process can we expect her to reveal her measurements? She is always trying to foist health eating on US so I'd like to know how all HER healthy eating is working out for her.

    Just to proclaim that she is not an "angry black woman"?
