Great to get out there and take a few cuts at the plate yesterday—I had a blast with all these extraordinary young people. Thanks for letting me drop in and thanks to the Nationals Youth Academy for the outstanding work you do to support youth in DC. twitter.com/natsacademy/status

Congratulations on the inauguration of @chicagosmayor@twitter.com Lori Lightfoot, Treasurer Melissa Conyears-Ervin, @chicityclerk@twitter.com Anna Valencia, and the new City Council. Watch President @BarackObama@twitter.com 's message to Chicagoans on this historic day.

Here’s a great story: While we’ve still got a lot of work to do to make college affordable for everyone, that didn’t stop Robert F. Smith from seizing an opportunity to make a difference. He’s erasing the student loan debt for this year’s @Morehouse@twitter.com grads. ajc.com/news/just-morehouse-co

Happy Mother's Day to the most caring, brilliant, funny, and grounded woman I know—a perfect role model not just for our daughters, but so many others. Love you, @MichelleObama@twitter.com .

As part of the @ObamaFoundation@twitter.com , moms like Dr. Mwansa Ketty Lubeya are answering the call for change—and raising the next generation of leaders while they’re at it. twitter.com/obamafoundation/st

Congratulations, Meghan and Harry! Barack and I are so thrilled for both of you and can't wait to meet him. twitter.com/RoyalFamily/status

Happy , everybody! I'm proud of every student out there who's taking the next step in their education. It's the best thing you can do for yourself and your future. twitter.com/michelleobama/stat

Fixed the tweet parsing of @obamabot so the tweets are not just copied over but media is correctly uploaded to the instance and links are fully working.

Unfortunately, the last 10 toots are repeated. Won't happen again, I'm happy with the results now. :)

Condolences to the family of John Singleton. His seminal work, Boyz n the Hood, remains one of the most searing, loving portrayals of the challenges facing inner-city youth. He opened doors for filmmakers of color to tell powerful stories that have been too often ignored.

Congratulations to the new class of @ObamaFoundation@twitter.com Fellows! Their work in every region of the globe is already making the world better, and I hope this experience helps them make an even bigger impact. Obama.org/fellowship

For thirty-six years, Richard Lugar proved that pragmatism and decency work—not only in Washington but all over the world. Michelle and I send our warmest sympathies to his family and all those who had the privilege of knowing this American statesman.

Dominique’s story is a reminder to us that where you’re from shouldn’t define what you can achieve. I’m proud of her and all students striving for a better future. twitter.com/ObamaFoundation/st

This generation of climate activists is tired of inaction, and they've caught the attention of leaders all over the world. So while this challenge is only getting more urgent, they show us the kind of action it'll take to meet this moment.

And in the U.S., 13-year old @AlexandriaV2005@twitter.com of New York, 13-year old @havenruthie@twitter.com of Denver, and 16-year old @israhirsi@twitter.com of Minneapolis are some of the young people leading the fight at home. I hope more of us will follow their example. nationalgeographic.com/environ

I met 23-year-old @Luisamneubauer@twitter.com in Berlin earlier this month. Luisa, the organizer behind the student movement in Germany, says, “It’s our future and we’re not going to stop fighting for it.” latimes.com/world/la-fg-german

They're people like 16-year-old @GretaThunberg@twitter.com , whose protests at Swedish parliament sparked a movement. Inspired by Greta's action, Fridays for Future brought together more than a million strikers on every continent last month to demand action on climate. ted.com/talks/greta_thunberg_t

Young people all over the world are leading the way in the fight to protect our planet because they know their future depends on it. This Earth Day, I want to celebrate the courageous, committed young leaders who are stepping up to save the one planet we've got.

To all who celebrate today, happy Easter from our family to yours! On this day of rebirth and renewal, let’s recommit to love and serve our brothers and sisters, especially those in need, in every way we can. Have a great day, everybody.

The attacks on tourists and Easter worshippers in Sri Lanka are an attack on humanity. On a day devoted to love, redemption, and renewal, we pray for the victims and stand with the people of Sri Lanka.
