MICHELLE Obama has officially joined social networking site Twitter, however husband Barack’s official account is not one of the 15 she has chosen to follow.

The first lady is already following all the branches of the US military as well as the Coast Guard and the Department of Education.

She has even followed the official account of the Office of Vice President Joe Biden.

Despite the apparent snug by his wife, President Obama was quick to follow her account, which has gained almost 70,000 followers since it was set up yesterday.

The account will be run by the First Lady and her staff – the first tweet told followers that any tweets sent by Michelle and not her staff will be signed ‘mo’.

Mrs Obama even chose not to use an image of her with her husband as her profile picture – rather choosing a shot of her with family dog Bo.
