Michelle Obama went live on Twitter on Thursday, and scooped up more than 88,000 followers within a few hours.
In her first tweet, the first lady writes: "Hi, everyone, and thanks for the warm welcome. Look forward to staying in touch with you here. -mo.'"
Her twitter feed will be managed by the president's re-election campaign, with any tweets from the first lady herself to be signed "-mo."
The first two tweets came from the campaign staff, and described the account as "a new way for you to connect with First Lady Michelle Obama and the President's campaign."
The third came from the first lady herself.
President Barack Obama also has a Twitter account managed by the campaign.
Its first tweet of the day: "It's not every day we get to welcome the First Lady of the United States to Twitter _ happy to have you, (at)MichelleObama!"
