The presidential candidates are taking to social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter to get their campaign messages out to a wider audience. President Barack Obama has declared himself the "Twoosh Master" after completing a tweet using all 140 characters, according to Politico.
* President Obama's "Twoosh" came during an interactive Twitter question-and-answer session in Des Moines, Iowa.
* The White House Twitter account has 2.8 million followers. Though there are several campaign-related tweets on the account, President Obama has a separate Twitter account dedicated to his re-election campaign. That account has 15.8 million followers.
* The RNC Twitter account posts updates about the campaign but also uses an interactive component, using trivia questions to engage followers.
* The Twitter account of the Democratic Party has 108,000 followers. The majority of the tweets from the party are aimed at the presidential election.

* The Obama Facebook page, which is run by Obama for America, has over 26 million followers. The page also has an online store and features a section called the "Obama Network," which pulls together other top Obama-related Facebook pages.
