Barack Obama left his 2.6 million fans on Twitter, the social networking website, bemused, disappointed and mildly irritated by admitting on Monday that he had never used the service himself.
"Let me say that I have never used Twitter," he told students in Shanghai. "I noticed that young people are very busy with these electronics. My thumbs are too clumsy to type in things on the phone."
During his election campaign, Mr Obama portrayed himself as "connected" to the people through Twitter and his ever-present blackberry phone.
Some of his more understanding fans asked if it was any real surprise that the president had little time to "tweet". "Did anyone really think he was posting on his own?" asked @Inap.
Others, however, complained that Mr Obama has a "verified account" which is supposed to prove that it is his own. "Unfollowing @BarackObama now. What a letdown!" wrote @bkuri.

PATHOLOGICAL LIAR IN CHIEF!
Dr. Charles Krauthammer once suggested that Raila Odinga's favorite cousin is a narcissist, and I believe the word of a seasoned psychiatrist like Dr. Krauthammer.
But what is deeply disturbing to me is not the pathological lying and narcissism oozing out of Raila Odinga's favorite cousin.
It is the mental illness oozing out of his followers that is the most distressing since there are so damn many of these sick people who identify neither with Americans or freedom in general.
And yet Zero went ballistic at the thought of having to give up his Crackberry because of security reasons.
I’d hate to be the guy or gal that was tweeting for him.....
Hmmm...remember the commercial attacking McCain for not being able to use the computer?
He means Toot and Is lying!
Question: Wouldn’t a twit a twitter?
Pay no attention to that man in Shanghai. The great and powerful President has twitted!
he uses a ghost twitterer. shoulda known.
Czar of Tweet is not exactly a resume enhancer...
And the six pound study bible Clinton liked to lug around on Sunday mornings? It probably had a few hundred pages cut out to make it lighter.
b.bb.bbbb.bbu...bb..bbbu...bb..but I thought that once Obama got elected we’d all be using Twitter to hold direct democracy plebiscites on all major issues?
That’s nothing, the big scandal of the Obama/Biden scampaign is that people spent nearly a billion dollars on an empty suit.
No, she doesn't ;)
They’ve got the Internet on computers now? When did that happen?
wait. i can hear it now:
“do you mean that barack hussein obama hasn’t been 120% honest with me, his young, loyal, and ignorant follower?”
someone should ask those who believed that he was twittering why the hamburger they get from the national chain never looks like it does in the commercial.
I’ll bet she has a hard vacuum in between her ears.
Omg ... now you’ll tell me he doesn’t personally monitor his Facebook page and approve each new fan request.
And a rotten personality.
