As of Tuesday afternoon, the White House account had more than 13,000 followers, even though the profile only had one tip — a link to the White House blog’s write-up of the president’s speech in Cannon Falls, Minn.
The White House will use the account to document the president’s world travels and will also let followers check-in to White House events such as town halls or speeches.
Whoever is taking the helm of the president’s Foursquare account has a lot of work to do. The White House account is not currently the mayor — the person who has checked-in at a given place the most in the past 60 days — at any of the White House locations on the site. That includes the Oval Office.
