These awesome tweets? The President didn’t write them

What’s important to know, and not necessarily obvious, is that the twitter account @BarackObama is not always the person Barack Obama. In fact, @BarackObama is run by Organizing for Action, a 501(c)(4) non-profit that ran the 2012 Obama reelection campaign. The account actually very clearly says this in its twitter description: “This account is run by Organizing for Action staff. Tweets from the President are signed -bo.” According to the Wire, there have been zero tweets signed by -bo in the last four months. Simply put, President Barack Obama did not tweet about House of Cards.

It always amazes me how many people don’t understand this. As if the president is going to run his own Twitter account (or tweet about House of Cards).

Hey, did y’all know that Labor Day actually wasn’t started so we could just grill meat and fight over when to stop wearing white? 
Yeah, it actually had to do with, like, labor — workers and workers rights.

So! For this week’s #UpChat, we’re partnering up with our friends at @AFLCIO to spend one whole hour talking about labor issues, such as wages, productivity, and income inequality.

Join us on Twitter on Thursday, August 29, from 3pm to 4pm EST for our chat! And while you’re waiting around for #UpChat to start, peep our Workonomics section; it’s full of great stuff all about labor. You know you’re into it.
