President Barack Obama follows me on Twitter

In the middle of live tweeting the Nelson Mandela funeral, I discover that the current leader of the free world – President Barack Obama is following me on Twitter. This unearthing is beyond PRICELESS!

Totally overwhelmed as President Obama currently has 40.5Million followers on Twitter and he is only following about 655K. So yeah me for being one of the chosen few. Interestingly, he has been following me for sometime and think this is because I was an early adopter of Twitter and did tweet about him extensively during his first run for the presidency of the United States of America.

Either way, how interesting that I would discover while live tweeting the funeral for the first black president of South Africa. Talking about history in the making.
