    Thank you, followed , I hope this won´t be a fiasco like when I started to follow to Shizuka only to find her sickish obsession with her dogs

    when I got the notification that she followed me (so if it is her she's in for a rude awakening lol) it did NOT say it was a verified account. so I'm skeptical that it is.

    It takes time to get a verified account, so it might be in the works.

    OK, I'm really behind the times. I know there is a thing called "twitter" and I see tweets posted with hash tags, but if I sign up where do the tweets go??? I don't have a smartphone and I don't have texting on my "dumb" phone....so where would the tweets go???

    When you sign up on Twitter, you can read and write tweets from the web by going to twitter.com.

    Some people use third-party websites, such as Tweetdeck and Hootsuite, if they have multiple accounts (as I do) or want to segment different types of tweets (for example, on Hootsuite, I have one list that follows skaters and another that follows reporters covering figure skating).

    And actually you don't even have to sign up really. You can simply check Michelle's Twitter page directly.

    I am withholding judgement. This could be the same MichelleWKwan that had a fake Facebook page.

    By the way, if you want to make a contribution to Michelle's husband's campaign for governor of Rhode Island, here you go.

    Update: Twitter now has officially verified Kwan's account.

    And today US Figure Skating has been tweeting encouragement for people to follow her.

    ^ Mr. Pell is the grandson of the late Senator Claiborne Pell (D, Rhode Island), who initiated the Pell Grants in the 1960s. The Pell family is a big deal in Rhode Island Democratic politics.

    As for "I'm a figure-skater, not a politician" Michelle , she has served in the State Department under two Presidents, Bush and Obama, and three Secretaries of State, Condoleezza Rice (R), Hilary Rodham Clinton (D) and John Kerry (D). Note the picture of the two Michelles (Kwan and Obama) playing ball on the White House lawn, at the top of Michelle's twitter page.
