Egypt: The Tweeting President

Egyptian president Muhammad Morsi has started officially tweeting from his existing account tonight. The account, which has 162k followers, was also verified by Twitter today. His first tweet reads:

Want to dedicate 1st tweet to martyrs of #jan25 revolution and brave #syrians… Muhammed #Morsi

It seems that Morsi would be tweeting in both Arabic and English.
