For her birthday, Michelle Obama gets new Twitter account

Michelle Obama's office debuted a new official Twitter account on Thursday with a tweet seeking well wishes for the first lady on her 49th birthday.

The @MichelleObama account run by the Obama campaign has more than 2.6 million followers of its own. As with that account, tweets by the first lady herself will  include -mo.

The set up is similar to that of the official @WhiteHouse account and President Obama's @BarackObama. There are already Twitter accounts associated with the first lady's Let's Move and Joining Forces initiatives.

@FLOTUS is quickly amassing followers (8,000 within 45 minutes of its first tweet), birthday greetings, and snark.
