President Obama took to Twitter late Tuesday night to congratulate swimmer Michael Phelps on winning his 19th Olympic medal, and setting a new record for the most hardware earned by a single athlete.
Phelps responded to the President a few hours later. He used a lot of exclamation points.
Other celebrities whose congratulatory hi-hello's Michael Phelps retweeted include famed Lindsay Lohan ex-girlfriend Samantha Ronson, and what the LA Times identifies as "several professional poker players."
President Obama's Twitter bio notes that tweets sent directly from the Commander-in-Chief are signed "-bo."
President Obama's Twitter bio was written by his dog, Bo.
