Perhaps the most exciting bit of news from The White House this week was that the President officially joined Twitter!
Hello, Twitter! It's Barack. Really! Six years in, they're finally giving me my own account.— President Obama (@POTUS) May 18, 2015
I wasn't the only one that got excited.
Welcome to @Twitter, @POTUS! One question: Does that username stay with the office? #askingforafriend— Bill Clinton (@billclinton) May 18, 2015
Barack Obama has his own Twitter account. He hasn’t asked for followers yet because he probably doesn’t want to @POTUS on the spot.— Ellen DeGeneres (@TheEllenShow) May 18, 2015
Away from the White House, I attended a special luncheon in honor of the American Ambassador to the UK, Ambassador Matthew Barzun. It was fantastic to hear of his passion for the UK - and his love of Wales!
