(The Root) -- The Internet is squealing over Michelle Obama's brand-new Instagram account. FLOTUS posted her first picture today, signed "-mo," indicating that she posted it herself, as she does on Twitter. She is currently chronicling the first family's trip to Senegal, South Africa and Tanzania and is using Instagram's new video feature, too.

I'm super-psyched, and really hoping for some selfies showing off her newest hairstyles and pics from the gym telling us what she's benching these days. Check out FLOTUS's first signed pic below.
