PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — The President of the United States has his own Twitter account.

President Obama joined the social network using the handle @potus. He previously would tweet from the handle @BarackObama, and sign the tweets with his initials, BO, so users knew it was him.

The rest of the tweets on the account were from his staff.

His first tweet on his official account read “Hello, Twitter! It’s Barack. Really! Six years in, they’re finally giving me my own account.”
