Michelle Obama may live in the White House, fly on Air Force One, and host world leaders in her own home. But put her in front of a computer, and she's just another confused mom trying to learn the FaceSpace and the MyTweet.

Yesterday the first lady posted her first official tweet. It was on @JoiningForces, not on an account of her own (so we can't -- at least, not yet -- get all the deets on her sneakouts to Target and PetCo).

Instead, Mrs. Obama was calling on readers to calling on Americans to support military families by joining a volunteer project, pledging service hours or sending a message of thanks.

"So, now I just press 'tweet'? I just press this?" the first lady asked in a White House video, after entering her message on a Mac laptop.

Yes, Michelle, you just press tweet.
