It's a big day for the first lady: She's turning 49 and she's starting an official First Lady Twitter account. While Michelle Obama had been on Twitter before (@MichelleObama), her old account was restricted to campaign usage. With the new @FLOTUS account, she'll be able to tweet about official (and, hopefully, not-so-official) First Lady Business.
While she only has two tweets so far (both written by staffers), Michelle O. has already racked up nearly 30,000 followers. Crossing our fingers for Twitpics of the president couchsurfing to new episodes of The Bachelor.
