Barack Obama is used to enduring long battles but even by his standards, a six-year wait to get a Twitter account must have been something of a slog.
Still, he's made his point, gaining 1.77m followers in less than 24 hours, easily beating poor old David Cameron, who languishes down the table with * only * 1.07m followers, despite being on the social media platform since 2010.
The US President made his inaugural tweet from the @Potus account yesterday afternoon
And already he's being pestered by some guy called Bill Clinton
Luckily Obama knows how to handle these kinds of enquiries. Just pass them onto his wife...
