Obama White House issues touching final tweet

The White House under President Obama has chosen a poignant message and photo for its last tweet.

The text reads, "Yes we can. Yes we did. Thank you for being a part of the past eight years."

The accompanying image is that of the Obama family marching in 2015 with Representative John Lewis and a crowd of others in Selma, Alabama.

Despite the official White House Twitter feed being cleared except for a congratulatory message to Donald Trump, Obama has continued to express his last thoughts as president on his account, @POTUS44.

On Friday morning, he tweeted, "It's been the honor of my life to serve you. You made me a better leader and a better man."

He also said, "I won't stop; I'll be right there with you as a citizen, inspired by your voices of truth and justice, good humor, and love."
