obama tanWhen President Barack Obama (pictured) wore a tan suit on Thursday while at a press conference to discuss the Ukraine and Islamic State, Twitter nation went nuts!

As soon as the President took the podium, folks in Twitterverse literally had a meltdown over his more summery fashion pick that was referred to as Obama’s “tanghazi.”  During Obama’s speech there were roughly 6,000 tweets about his choice of suit, and over the last 24 hours, Twitter exploded with more than 14,000 comments about it according to Topsy, a social media analytics firm.

There have even been numerous spoof accounts set up as a result of the tan suit, including @BarackTanSuit, @ObamaTanSuit and @Obamas_Tan_Suit.
