(Newser) – If you’re one of Barack Obama’s 2.6 million Twitter followers, you’ve been suckered—the president says he’s never sent a tweet in his life. In a Q&A session in Shanghai, Obama was asked what he thought of China’s restriction of Twitter. “I have never used Twitter,” replied the fake @BarackObama, “but I’m an advocate of technology and not restricting Internet access.”

Yeah, everyone knows that the leader of the free world isn’t posting all his own Twitter updates, TechCrunch allows. But “part of us wants to believe that when you see tweets like ‘Humbled’ after he won the Nobel Peace Prize that it could be the president really sending it. Nope.”
