It appears that former President Barack Obama has found a new and innovative way to reach out to the younger population in the United States and motivate more people to participate in the upcoming 2020 presidential election.
To do so, the renowned politician updated his Twitter account with a new post that included a short video message from the father of two.
In the caption of his post, Obama wrote that recently he has “learned a thing or two from the young people,” and he wanted to give something back to the community by explaining “how to make a plan to vote in this upcoming election.”
In the footage, the former president then proudly stated that over the last few months, he learned to do various things such as sourdough starter, how to quarantine properly, or the trendy Renegade challenge.
Obama continued his message on a more serious note as he then spoke about the importance of voting by exclaiming, “Our democracy is a precious thing, and it’s up to all of us to protect it.”
Over the last few months, I've learned a thing or two from the young people in our country. I figured I would return the favor by sharing with you how to make a plan to vote in this upcoming election.

Michelle Obama‘s husband said: “Since we’re still dealing with a pandemic, we’ve got to approach voting just like we do everything else these days: shopping, ordering dinner, pulling off a surprise birthday party over Zoom. We’ve got to plan.”
He added: “Now, there are a lot of people out there trying to confuse and mislead you about this election. They’re trying to make you cynical. They are trying to get you to believe your vote doesn’t matter. Do not let them do that. Our democracy is a precious thing, and it’s up to all of us to protect it.”
In addition, Obama quickly listed the various methods of voting in the USA and explained each one briefly.
However, viewers of the video clip were more excited by the fact that the former president mentioned at some point that he had a “finsta” — something like a private Instagram profile, and many expressed their desire to find Obama’s secret account.
As a result, one social media user excitedly wrote, “Today I learned Obama got a finsta, and I want to find it,” while another jokingly stated, “Operation Find Obama’s Finsta commences now.”
Obama has been very active in recent weeks, and he is doing all that he can to help his friend, former Vice President Joe Biden, in the 2020 race for the White House against nemesis and proponent of the Birther movement, President Donald Trump.
