Barack Obama Uses Ghost Writers For His Twitter Account

by | 19th, November 2009

obama-mobileBARACK Obama has a huge Twitter following. He is the President of the United States on Twitter. Barack Obama is your pal. It turns out that Barack doesn’t write his own Twitters. Another Barack Obama does that.

Rumours are that he doesn’t write his own speeches and might read the words off a machine. But let’s stick to the web.

There is a Barack Obama for every social networking site. FaceBook Obama is married, Bebo Obama likes cats, Tumblr Obama hates Obama, MySpace Obama knows all the words to Who Let The Dogs Out and Reddit Obama has a vegetable shaped like a penis.

The LA Times reports:

The president told a youth audience in Shanghai on Sunday that he has never used Twitter…

“I have never used Twitter, but I’m an advocate of technology and not restricting Internet access,” Obama said during the town hall. “My thumbs are too clumsy to type in things on the phone.”

So if that’s not Obama, you’re talking to who is it? Hang up, kids. Hang up now. It could be anyone.

The New York Times told us:

“It is not only celebrities who are forced to look to a team to produce real-time commentary on daily activities; politicians like Ron Paul have assigned staff members to create Twitter posts and Facebook personas. Candidate Barack Obama, as well as President Obama, has a social-networking team to keep his Twitter feed tweeting.”

Others respond:

Shocking, given that his account with 2.6m followers has even been ‘verified’ by Twitter headquarters,” said Vicki Kolovou, a web developer.

“I am sad,” says Funuhu from Japan.

Tech President, expressed surprise that anyone was surprised. But even the web savvy raised eyebrows at the idea that Obama had never tweeted.

Techcrunch tells us:

This is interesting considering the Internet, and social media in particular, was considered a large part of his ascension to the Presidency. Obviously, he had a killer team around him that was able to embrace the web without the then-Senator getting too much involved. Still, it’s somewhat surprising that he never sent any of his own tweets during the primaries. And undoubtedly part of us wants to believe that when you see tweets like “This is history,” which was sent on November 7 — or “Humbled” after he won the Nobel Peace Prize in October, that it could the President really sending it. Nope.

So Barack Obama is a liar? His 2,702,136 follwoers are being duped into follwing a PR goon? Which means the real Barack Obama could be anyone. Here’s the secret it’s him. Join the revolution.
