Washington: As soon as he won a second term in the White House, Barack Obama tweeted on Wednesday, “Four more years”.

“We`re all in this together. That`s how we campaigned, and that`s who we are. Thank you”, Obama tweeted minutes after he defeated his Republican rival Mitt Romney in a neck-and-neck race.
"Four more years," he said in another tweet.

Obama has also posted a message thanking his supporters on his campaign website.

Below is the message:

I`m about to go speak to the crowd here in Chicago, but I wanted to thank you first.

I want you to know that this wasn`t fate, and it wasn`t an accident. You made this happen.

You organized yourselves block by block. You took ownership of this campaign five and ten dollars at a time. And when it wasn`t easy, you pressed forward.

I will spend the rest of my presidency honoring your support, and doing what I can to finish what we started.

But I want you to take real pride, as I do, in how we got the chance in the first place.

Today is the clearest proof yet that, against the odds, ordinary Americans can overcome powerful interests.

There`s a lot more work to do.

But for right now: Thank you.

Barack
