Six years after his historic election, President Barack Obama finally scored his own Twitter account Monday and he’s posted two tweets @POTUS.

Within hours, he garnered 1 million followers, and he’s following 65 people, including First Lady Michelle Obama at @Flotus, Chicago sports teams, and government officials, among others. No sign of Malia or Sasha, who are reportedly banned from all forms of social media.
