President Obama's first-ever Tweet.

President Obama has just pushed his first tweet. This is how it happened. The president and his wife were visiting the American Red Cross to promote aid to Haiti. He pushed the button on a tweet. Making him the first commander-in-chief to tweet. History was made at the push of a button. Located at @RedCross

CNN has this to say

Aides to former President George W. Bush told CNN that he never published a tweet, and they were happy to crown Obama as the first tweeting President - with a catch.

These are the tweets found on the Red Cross twitter feed

President Obama and the First Lady are here visiting our disaster operation center right now.

President Obama pushed the button on the last tweet. It was his first ever tweet!

There was more good news on the website as well: "Donation Update: Over $21 Million in $10 donations raised for the people of #Haiti through the @RedCross text HAITI to 90999"reads another tweet.  Americans have really responded and have given aid.

There was more good news announced on their twitter feed with this post

Donation Update: Over $21 Million in $10 donations raised for the people of #Haiti through the @RedCross text HAITI to 90999 campaign.
