Read Former President Barack Obama's Tweets
From the O’Bama family to yours, Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
It’s the best time of year! My #MarchMadness brackets will get busted soon enough, but here are my picks.
Who do you have winning it all?
“Change starts when ordinary people decide they’re going to do extraordinary things.”
Listen to @BarackObama's moving reflections at a very special Obama Foundation 44 alumni event in Austin, TX. We’re so inspired by @bsw5020 and @sabrevaya, and their work through @IAmALSOrg.
I signed into law the most significant gun safety reform in nearly three decades.
But Congress must do more.
Let’s pass universal background checks, eliminate immunity for gun manufacturers, and ban assault weapons.
I'm incredibly proud and inspired by @BSW5020 and @Sabrevaya, their family, and the movement they've brought together to fight ALS. They've taken an incredibly challenging moment and are driving change. And they're not done yet.
Last night, @sabrevaya and I had the privilege of being with @BarackObama at an @ObamaFoundation alumni event for @noc_film.
As I listened to him, I kept thinking about how him becoming President and me being alive right now were supposed to be impossible.
Nothing is impossible
For Women's History Month, I wanted to share the stories of Cary and Sharika—two women who've been building the Obama Presidential Center on the South Side of Chicago. I met them last year while visiting the site. Read their stories here: https://t.co/iSIl7dGFp8

This International Women's Day, read how @MichelleObama, @MelindaGates and Amal Clooney are working together to help end child marriage. I'm proud of the work @GirlsAlliance is doing to take on issues like this to create a better world for girls everywhere.https://t.co/m49a4abtjk
Judy Heumann dedicated her life to the fight for civil rights—starting as a young organizer at Camp Jened and later helping lead the disability rights movement. Michelle and I were fortunate to work with Judy over the years, and are thinking of her family and friends.
“Fired up. Ready to go!” Edith Childs understands the power of a single voice, and she used those words to light up a room during my campaign stop in Greenwood, SC back in 2007.
I recently caught up with Edith, who just retired after 24 years in public service. Take a look:
Real change happens one person, one community, one connection at a time. If you’re an emerging leader in Chicago, Detroit, or Jackson — I hope you’ll check out this new initiative to bring people from different backgrounds together to help solve local problems.
It’s time for us to work together to strengthen our communities and our democracy. That work begins by empowering emerging leaders and changemakers at the local level.
That's why we're launching the Change Collective.

I’m so proud of the work we’ve done at @MBK_Alliance, and the young men who’ve been a part of this community. And we're not done yet. We’ll keep working to make sure even more boys and young men reach their full potential.
Today, the My Brother’s Keeper Alliance celebrates nine years of dynamic initiatives and programming. Our work thrives on the unwavering commitment of our network of community organizations and leaders whose purpose is rooted in the progression of boys and young men of color.
I’m excited to announce that 105 inspiring young people from across Africa, Asia-Pacific, and Europe will be joining the @ObamaFoundation Leaders program.
I am so proud of all of you, and I can't wait to see what you do.
Dr. Blank's four years serving in my administration was just one part of her extraordinary life. Whether in government or academia, she devoted her career to reducing inequality and increasing opportunities for others, and made everyone around her better.
Happy Valentine’s Day to the one and only, @MichelleObama. You make every day feel like an adventure.
Congratulations to the Kansas City @Chiefs, Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelce and Andy Reid for a great Super Bowl win and for sustained excellence. And shout out to the @Eagles and Jalen Hurts—outstanding competitors with a bright future.
@KingJames has been changing the game for 20 years, and has become a leader on and off the court. Congrats on making history.

The scale of devastation after the earthquakes in Türkiye and Syria is almost unimaginable. Michelle and I are thinking of the thousands of people who have been affected, including Syrian refugees. Here are some resources for anyone looking to help.
A devastating 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Türkiye and Syria early Monday morning, leaving thousands of people dead and many more injured.
As recovery efforts continue, here are a couple of ways to help in the aftermath of this disaster: 🧵
At my last Black History Month celebration at the White House, we had folks of all ages come together to celebrate—including Clark Reynolds. I hope we'll continue to build a brighter future for young people like him.
Black History Month is about the shared experience of all Black Americans whose lives have shaped, challenged, and ultimately strengthened America.
