It’s official: The President has joined Pinterest.
The @BarackObama Twitter account made the formal announcement yesterday:
Obama’s Pinterest profile currently has eight boards and 44 pins, ranging from recipes to pet photos to various political tidbits. It’s being “run by Obama for America, President Obama’s 2012 campaign” and has just shy of 5,000 followers as of Wednesday morning.
Obama’s pinning actions, while no doubt essential to spreading more colorful, personality-infused messaging, will likely be a bigger boon for the social networking site than for the campaign. Consider this yet another defining moment for the still-small, 30-person, Palo Alto-based company.
