We already knew that President Obama had a computer (of course). We also knew that he had visited the headquarters of "Twitters". But it wasn't until this afternoon that we found out that in order for the President to visit Twitters on the computer he has, Obama must log on to the "internets."

The President misspoke at a Twitter town hall this afternoon, making the same mistake that George W. Bush memorably made in 2004. He quickly corrected himself, however.

Quoth Obama:

We do have to make sure that there are computers in a computer age inside classrooms, and that they work and that there’s Internets that are actually -- there are Internet connections that actually function.
