Barack Obama has taken over the White House’s Instagram feed and will be sharing photos of his trip to Alaska for the next few days.
The President announced his foray into Instagramming with the following message:
“Hey everyone, it’s Barack. Incredible view as we near Anchorage. I’ll be spending the next few days touring this beautiful state and meeting with Alaskans about what’s going on in their lives. Looking forward to sharing it with you. -bo”
That accompanied this rather boring first Instagram pic:
Obama is in Alaska meeting with other world leaders about climate change, as well as getting a crash course in survival technique from adventurer Bear Grylls .
Hopefully the President’s Instagram skills will improve over the visit as he gets some pointers from his staff on picture composition and filter usage.
