      This is such an incredible shot Geoff.

      1. First presidential tweet
      2. Jack, creator of Twitter, admiring the president doing so.
      3. Jack's reflection on the screen. It's like Obama is typing directly into the spot in Jack's brain where Twitter was conceived.
      4. Washington's hand pointing directly toward Jack, whose eye's lead you directly to the President, whose eyes lead you directly to the keyboard.
      5. @Jack is a future presidential candidate. I'm callin' it now.

      Watching this moment live streamed, I felt the need for a second camera, showing us that the President was typing. The image of him standing there typing wasn't good internet TV. #ironic
