in touch with senior staff and a small group of personal friends," White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said Thursday.

to ensure that Obama can communicate in a way that's secure.

be subject to the Presidential Records Act of 1978,
which requires that a record be kept of all White House communication. 

We can just imagine what they'll say. We're wondering about MMS and if he will be sending photos of a dog to Sasha and Malea.
