The President of the United States and former Illinois Senator Barack Obama signed up for his own Twitter account on Monday.
Hello, Twitter! It's Barack. Really! Six years in, they're finally giving me my own account.
— President Obama (@POTUS) May 18, 2015
Obama is following 65 accounts on Twitter including the Chicago Bulls, Blackhawks, Bears and White Sox. He’s leaving out one Chicago sports Twitter account; the Cubs.

The President of the United States has always shown support for the south side baseball team, he even wore a White Sox jacket when he threw out the first pitch at the 2009 All-Star game.
In 2014, when Obama threw out the first pitch for the Washington Nationals, he wore a Nationals jacket, but put on his White Sox hat right before throwing the pitch.
If you found out one thing today, it’s that the President of the United States isn’t a Cubs fan.
The Cubs want to change this.
