President Barack Obama got his own Twitter account on Monday, and he wasted no time in following the Chicago sports teams.

Well, most of them, anyway.

President Obama, who is a Chicago White Sox fan, conveniently chose not to follow the Chicago Cubs:

Now that's a true White Sox fan. 

If he thought he could snub the Cubs without anyone noticing, he was wrong. The Cubs got wind of it and called him out.

Oh, he also forgot to follow the WNBA's Chicago Sky.

President Obama may wind up following the Sky, but it would be pretty surprising if he caved and gave the Cubs a follow.
