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.

And yet, he's a TWIT!
Haven’t his followers figured out that TOTUS does the twittering?
Seriously, these folks must have thought that he actually called them the night before the election reminding them to get out and vote. They couldn’t figure out why he kept talking even while they were professing their undying love.
New age way of expressing buyer's remorse...
Photographic proof that Obama lied when he said that he had previously been lying on that detail. I wonder what his reason would be for lying about whether his previous comments were lies. [Note: I may not need to change my tagline until 2012.]
“Let me say that I have never used Twitter,” he told students in Shanghai
Is that why he goes away so often - to cleanse and purge
his soul, to finally speak a little truth. I guess he
thought his idiot followers in U.S. would never hear!
Now we know what Bill Ayers’ job is in the administration: Ghost Tweeting.
Why am I not surprised.
