POTUS Posts to Instagram for the First Time

President Barack Obama is upping his social media game.

POTUS made his very first post on Instagram last night as he journeyed to Alaska.

The image was taken out the window of Air Force One. The blue sky breaks out along the horizon line as a blue engine from the airplane can be seen in the foreground. 

"Incredible view as we near Anchorage. I'll be spending the next few days touring this beautiful state and meeting with Alaskans about what’s going on in their lives," wrote Obama on the White House Instagram feed. 

The White House tweeted that the post was the president's first on Instagram. The presidents signs all his social media posts with 'bo.'

In addition to showing off his social media skills, Obama is on a wilderness trek to be filmed as part of TV show '"Running Wild with Bear Grylls," talking to Alaskans about "what's going on in their lives," and surveying the impacts of climate change. 

In May, Obama began tweeting from his own POTUS Twitter account and broke the Guiness World Record for acquring one million followers in less than five hours.
