 FLOTUS Announced Her Twitter Account ‘Limited’ Due to Shutdown
By Andrew Johnson
October 1, 2013 3:10 PM


First lady Michelle Obama tweeted on Tuesday afternoon that her Twitter account will see fewer updates due to the government shutdown.

Quote
FLOTUS        ✔ @FLOTUS

Due to Congress’s failure to pass legislation to fund the government, updates to this account will be limited. #Shutdown
11:55 AM - 1 Oct 2013


In 2009, FactCheck.org found that the first lady had a staff of 24 people. It is unclear whether any of the first lady’s staff have been furloughed as a result of the government shutdown.

Isn't Twitter a free service?

Certainly, but the Moose has to pay a few dozen lackeys tens of thousands of dollars per year - each -  to tweet "her" thoughts to the masses.

Yeah, she's out mowing the lawn.
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.
