Today, President Obama released his official Long Form Birth Certificate on WhiteHouse.gov. Whether this move will have any impact on the Birther movement is yet to be determined.
Since the internet has been the main platform for keeping this thing going, it is only fitting that it should react strongly to this development.
Twitter has blown up over Obama's Birth Certificate, celebrities, politicians and the common-folk alike. Here is my roundup of the Long Form Birth Certificate Announcement Day (LFBCAD for future reference) in the Twitterverse.
The White House tweeted about the release, emphasizing that the issue is a distraction from real issues:
The Republican response was vaired, Presidential candidate Mitt Romney emphasized that this new release is a waste of time. Former VP candidate Sarah Palin and well know conservative blogger Andrew Breitbart commended Donald Trump for his media blitz regarding the issue in the last couple of weeks.

What President Obama should really be releasing is a jobs plan
Media: admit it, Trump forced the issue. Now, don't let the WH distract you w/the birth crt from what Bernanke says today. Stay focused, eh?
Thanks, Mr. Trump - I think - for weirdly yet effectively getting this distraction off the national radar.
Here are my favorite humorous tweets, ranging in authorship from ABC Newsman George Stephanapoulos to Family Guy's Seth MacFarlane to a fictional account created for the Long Form Birth Certificate itself:
Now that we've seen his birth certificate, I want to see proof that President Obama is black.
Breaking! Obama released his birth certificate. Also breaking: The Riddler's spine. That is all.
