Michelle Obama’s birthday: New Twitter, new bangs

On her 49th birthday Thursday, Michelle Obama turned over a few new leaves: A new Twitter account, @FLOTUS, which looks like it will replace the @MichelleObama account run by the campaign staff and largely quiet since November; and a new hairstyle — bangs! — which her office unveiled in the second tweet of the day. Of course, the much-clicked-on photo of Mrs. Obama meeting with one of the inauguration “citizen co-chairs” included a plug for the White House’s National Day of Service.

Update 7:45 p.m.: As for her birthday dinner? The president took her to Georgetown’s Cafe Milano.
