MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - President Barack Obama is taking a more
active role on Twitter, 140 characters at a time.

Obama's campaign says in a posting on its website that Obama
will tweet regularly from the popular social media service and his
tweets will be signed "-BO."

The campaign says it will manage Obama's Twitter account and
Facebook page.

Obama tweeted early Friday evening, welcoming followers to "a
new (at)BarackObama."

The campaign says the changes will let it report on Obama's
daily activities while connecting with millions of supporters.

Obama has more than 8.69 million followers on Twitter.

According to the website twittercounter.com, that makes him the
third most followed account among Twitter users behind Lady Gaga
and Justin Bieber.
