In Obama's White House, Twitter is banned

By

"They're going to have to pry it from my hands." That was President Barack Obama, back in January, waxing poetic on his BlackBerry. But apparently not all tech fads are created equal.

Today, Obama's press secretary, Robert Gibbs, revealed that Twitter, the popular social networking site, is blocked on all White House computers. "I'm on camera enough that people have a decent sense of what I'm doing minus Twitter," Gibbs told CSPAN.

Fair enough. But if it's true that Twitter is banned in the White House, then who is operating the official White House Twitter feed? Conspiracy theorists, begin theorizing.
