ABC’s Jake Tapper was speechless after Jerry Seinfeld responded to one of his tweets, responding at first with only a string of exclamation points before regaining his composure.
Today, CNN’s Wolf Blitzer thanked the “president” for a “shoutout” from the @BarackObama Twitter feed, though he was quick to clarify that it wasn’t his opinion the president was quoting, but that of a focus group.
@BarackObama Thanks Mr. President for the shoutout. I was citing what the CNN focus group of undecided voters in VA told us.

But a shoutout? That’s thrill-up-the-leg material, right? More savvy Twitter users had to break it to Blitzer that, no, President Obama doesn’t actually write those tweets.

Kudos to Blitzer for not asking if he could “get a follow-back.”
