President Barack Obama, who made big strides using social media to rally supporters in his 2008 campaign, appears ready to rally his base once again via social media.

Moments ago, Obama tweeted the above message, “Today, we’re filing papers to launch our 2012 campaign. Say, that you’re in:” The tweet included a link to a short video with tributes from his 2008 supporters.
不久前,奥巴马在推特上发出上面这样一条消息,“今天,我们正在填写一些文件启动我们2012年的竞选,嘿,就等你了。” 这条推附有一个链接指向一个简短的视频,里面是对2008年支持者们的一个展示。

Is it that time already?

Obama’s team clearly realizes it appears early to start the 2012 campaign and followed with this tweet:

“While I stay focused on the job you elected me to do, the work of laying the foundation for our campaign must start today.”

Obama also posted a similar announcement message to his nearly 19 million fans on Facebook.

In addition to using social media to share his intentions, Obama’s team alerted supporters the old-fashioned way – via email with a link to the campaign video.
