The nation still is trying to hammer down whether or not Barack Obama really is America’s first black president, but there’s no question that he was our first Twitter president. The White House reminds us that today is the first anniversary of the first-ever presidential Twitter town hall.
The people of Twitter have stepped in to mark the occasion and remind the White House that the social platform is still very much live.
