    The 44th President of the United States joined Twitter this morning and sent out his first tweet announcing his exclusive new account @POTUS.*Technically, the President’s first account @BarackObama was ran by his people at the White House, while this new account will be exclusively tweets from him.*

    The interesting thing about his first tweet is what he used to send it: an iPhone. *

    Now, if you’re using the official Twitter apps on Twitter on the web, you won’t be able to see what client he’s using to tweet. However, if you’re using a third party client like Tweetbot that still indicates client specifics you’ll be able to see he used an iPhone for this specific tweet.*

    That obviously begs the question, has the president finally gotten the okay to use an iPhone?*

    As far as I've read his BlackBerry is for his DOD mailbox only, nothing else.

    Who cares if he Tweets from an iToy when he runs the country from a BlackBerry.

    He can use iPhone for social media where security is not an issue. Blackberry remains his most secured device which he uses to issue out instructions to Pentagon on when and how to attack Iran's nuclear site.

    Obama and Clinton use BlackBerry. It was John McCain who was widely reported as playing poker on his iPhone during the hearings on Syria.

    So the person getting paid to maintain Obama's Twitter account is using an iPhone. No biggie.

    Obama Used Someone Else’s iPhone To Tweet His First Presidential Account Tweet


    President Obama still carries his secure BlackBerry. On the day of the first tweet from @POTUS, the White House won’t say if that device is Twitter capable.


    But this wasn’t the president’s iPhone.

    A White House official told BuzzFeed News Obama’s first tweet from the brand-new presidential Twitter account was sent using an iPhone registered to the Executive Office of the President — the government name for the sprawling presidential staff — but was not a device Obama regularly uses.

    Obama is still outfitted with his super-secure government BlackBerry. The White House said it would not get into specifics about the device, including whether or not it’s capable of posting tweets. In an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live in March, Obama revealed his BlackBerry is far more locked down than consumer smart phones.

    “I can’t use phones with recorders in them,” Obama told Kimmel. “So a lot of the newfangled stuff, for security reasons, I don’t get.”

    Obama has posted to Twitter regularly during his campaigns for the White House and while serving as president. Up until Monday, presidential tweets from the president were posted to the @WhiteHouse account and signed with a “-bo.”

    The new @POTUS account, like @WhiteHouse, belongs to the government, not to Obama. The next president will take it over in 2017, according to Alex Wall, the White House Director of Online Engagement. In a White House blog post Monday, Wall announced the @POTUS account and explained that it “will serve as a new way for President Obama to engage directly with the American people, with tweets coming exclusively from him.”

    Obama won’t use Twitter exactly like a regular user, however. A White House official told BuzzFeed News that while the president will continue to add follows and post tweets, he will not engage in direct messaging.

    He's used iOS products for quite some time, IIRC.

    Well to be sure I will go to the White House and ask him in person. This should be pretty easy since the Secret Service is normally drunk or hangin out with prostitutes or crashing into gates. I will give Obama my Classic he needs something that has some security.
