The Obama Administration continued its Internet stampede Friday by opening its official White House Twitter account.
This comes just days after the White House opened its official Flickr account, and presumably it only will be a few days until we see the official White House eHarmony account. ("ISO large bags of money to pay off the national debt"?)
So what historic moment was used for the new White House's first twat?
Beside the obligatory "Welcome to the official Twitter page for the White House!", the Obama Administration's Thomas Edison moment was ... the pig flu, of course.
"Check out the CDC website (www.cdc.gov) or @CDCemergency to learn more about H1N1 flu (swine flu), as well as prevention tips."
Not quite "Mary Had a Little Lamb," eh?
Don't worry, Obama-maniacs, the good stuff wasn't far away. After another swine flu update, the administration got back to the real business of the day: playing hoops with the UConn women's team.
