Obama Tweets. Should we be impressed?

Barack Obama proclaimed Thursday he's the first president to "live Tweet."

A presidential seal not only adorned his podium, but his laptop as well as he took questions - and tried to frame replies - in Twitter's 140 character format.

An adoring room full of spectators whipped out camera phones and zapped multiple images to capture this historic event.

With the serious issues threatening our nation, it's nice the White House makes obvious effort to show it still has time and energy to pitch circus-like distractions like (gasp) live Tweets to keep our focus off the important stuff.
