White House Unsure Whether Obama Is Aware of His Own Tweets

'I'm not sure of he's aware of that tweet, because the Twitter handle is maintained independent of the White House'

White House Not Sure If Obama Is Aware of Own Tweets (Washington Free Beacon)

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest admitted Monday that he’s not sure if President Obama reads his own tweets.

The Twitter handle “@BarackObama” is primarily maintained by Organizing for Action (OFA), a 501(c)(4) organization formed by reorganizing the Obama campaign after the election, except for tweets signed “BO.” Jonathan Karl asked Earnest whether the president is aware of OFA’s other tweets in his name: “Does he even read the others, does know they’re going out? Are they reviewed by senior people at the White House or is that just simply OFA doing something on his behalf?”
