Obama to actor Aziz Ansari: 'I've got more Twitter followers than you'

Ansari, best known for his current role on NBC's sitcom "Parks and Recreation," tweeted Monday that he appreciated getting a "shoutout" from the president, calling it "unreal" that he took him on over a lack of Twitter followers.

Obama also revealed that his daughter, Malia, is a “big ‘Parks and Recreation’ fan.”

“So having Aziz here is the only thing that she thinks is worth me doing,” he added.

Ansari has 1,691,698 followers compared to Obama's 12,839,092.
