(WASHINGTON) — President Obama might have a leg up on Twitter and 10 times as many Facebook fans, but there is one realm of the social network where Mitt Romney’s campaign is possibly winning: Pinterest.
When first lady Michelle Obama debuted on the digital pin-board site Wednesday morning, her first “pin” came more than three months after Ann Romney tacked her first behind-the-campaign-scenes photo onto her newly minted Pinterest account back in February.
Nearly 7,500 fans are now following Ann Romney’s pins, which range from old family photos to the books she is reading. In the five hours since the first lady joined the latest and fastest-growing social site, more than 2,500 followers have signed on to follow her pins on the content-sharing service.
Mrs. Obama’s first pin board, to celebrate Father’s Day, encourages users to sign a virtual Father’s Day card for the president.
