Michelle Obama joins Twitter in time for iCarly cameo

The first lady, Michelle Obama joined Twitter last week as @MichelleObama with the intention of translating her influence in real life to help her husband, President @BarackObama campaign for re-election in 140-character updates. She’s already amassed more than 320,000 followers and has been very clear that her staff will be posting, except when you see “-mo” signed at the end of one of her tweets.

Interestingly one of her first actual tweets was about her upcoming cameo on the hit Nickelodeon show iCarly. The first lady shot a made-for-tv movie with the iCarly cast called, “iMeet the First Lady: A Very Special Visitor,” premiering today at 7:30/6:30 central. In her tweet she even told the world how the Obama children were big fans of the show that has over 427,00 followers on Twitter, over 12,000,000 likes on Facebook
