President Obama Takes to the Tweets in Haiti

The American Red Cross reports that during a visit to their disaster operations center in Haiti, President Barack Obama, accompanied by First Lady Michelle Obama, joined the Twitter generation and sent his first-ever tweet.

Although his presidential campaign made effective use of Facebook, Twitter and other social media outlets, President Obama personally was a neophyte when it came to limiting himself to 140 characters.  Reportedly, the President pressed the "Send" button to dispatch the following message: "President Obama and the First Lady are here visiting our disaster operation center right now."

Admit it; you thought the tweet might be more along the lines of: "What did I do in a past life to deserve Harry Reid?"
