President Barack Obama Is Easing Into His Work Week By Following His Favorite Sports Teams On Twitter
Like you, President Barack Obama has a case of the Mondays.
Today he woke up and decided to spend his morning looking into this new thing called Twitter. After six years, he finally his has own account. That, of course, raises the question of who we’ve been following all this time, but I digress.
Hello, Twitter! It’s Barack. Really! Six years in, they’re finally giving me my own account.

By mid-afternoon I expect him to have followed all the big-name comedians and, if we’re lucky, the sexiest models. You know, typical guy stuff.
Also, it’d be wonderful if Obama just became obsessed with tweeting. Missing big summits, neglecting his other duties to make pithy comments in real time.
And honestly, that might make him more likeable. It is, after all, his second term, so what does it matter anyway?
