I cannot believe I did not know this little bit of Twitter / Saint Louis trivia until I heard it from Charlie Brennan (@charliekmox) on AM 1120, KMOX this morning. Charlie was interviewing Twitter co-founder and Saint Louis native, Jack Dorsey (@Jack), and he mentioned these two fun facts about Twitter and Saint Louis:
1. Bill Clinton sent his first tweet while in Saint Louis, MO on April 6, 2013 during the sixth annual Clinton Global Initiative University meeting at Washington University in St. Louis
2. Michelle Obama, First Lady of the United States, sent her first tweet ever while in Saint Louis - October 19, 2011 - from World Series Game 1 at Busch Stadium! Her tweet went out over the@joiningforces account to answer questions about Joining Forces and to spread awareness about supporting America's troops.
Here they are:
Just spent amazing time with Colbert! Is he sane? He is cool! #cgiu
