First Lady Michelle Obama Debuts Birthday Hair + Launches New Twitter

This week, First Lady Michelle Obama, celebrated her 49th birthday. She was spotted at a White House meeting with one of the co-chairs of President Obama’s inauguration, rocking a new fancy bang.

And in non-birthday-hair-news, FLOTUS has launched a new twitter page. Twitter folk can now find her, @FLOTUS (which is Washington shorthand for “first lady of the United States”). The First Lady’s office unveiled her new Twitter identity on Thursday, largely to replace a previous Twitter account under the handle of @MichelleObama. That account was launched a year ago and run by President Barack Obama’s re-election team. It will now be managed by the Democratic National Committee. The site’s initial tweet promised updates and pictures. Tweets by the first lady herself will be signed “-mo.”
