Obama tweets for the first time

President Barack Obama has "pushed the button" to send his first ever tweet during a visit to the D.C. offices for the American Red Cross.

Obama used the relief organization's page to tweet for the first time.

According to the Red Cross Twitter feed, "President Obama and the First Lady are here visiting our disaster operation center right now."

The next tweet read, "President Obama pushed the button on the last tweet. It was his first ever tweet!"

The president who made history using social media to help get elected is actually using the technology.

Now that's news.
