It's been a veeeery emotional day for America.

Donald Trump was sworn in as the 45th president of the United States, which means the now-former POTUS and FLOTUS, the great Barack and Michelle, had to step down after eight blissful years in the White House.

As Obama said in a speech following the inauguration, he and Michelle have been "milking" their goodbyes, but we wouldn't have it any other way.

From Michelle's emotional final Instagram posts and the touching final wave Barack gave us before boarding a chopper to leave D.C., the couple has been making us reach for the tissues all week long.

Now, hours after the inauguration ceremony, Barack and Michelle have sent the first tweets on their personal Twitter accounts since officially exchanging handles with the Trumps.

But have no fear, she assured her followers she'll be "back before you know it" to work on the important issues.

The former POTUS also made his triumphant return, complete with a beautiful dad joke, of course.

Barack gave his Twitter page a complete makeover, including new photos and an updated bio, which now reads: Dad, husband, President, citizen.

He informed his followers he and Michelle are embarking on a (much-deserved) vacation to Palm Springs.
