President Barack Obama reached a milestone. Or, the official POTUS Twitter account did, anyway, surpassing 10 million followers — and Twitter is helping him celebrate. 

The social media platform released a highlight reel featuring some of the best moments from his POTUS account, including video of him from May 2015 sending his very first tweet from the Oval Office. “Thank you for all the incredible tweets,” a message in the video read. 

Obama broke the Guinness World Record for the fastest Twitter account to reach 1 million followers, so it’s not too surprising that he now joins the 10-million club more than a year later. The account still has a long way to go before reaching the numbers achieved by his personal account, which touts more than 76 million followers.

Other celebrities to have reached the 10-million milestone include Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Kim Kardashian, Taylor Swift, and Justin Bieber.
