    Yesterday, me and my iPhone got to go behind the scenes at the White House. I was with a small group of journalists, who were all there to celebrate the lift of the 40-year-long ban that prohibited photos inside the POTUS' house.

    "It's the 'People's House,'" Michelle Obama said. "A place where everyone should feel welcome...My husband and I have made it our mission to open up the house to as may people as we can."

    Indeed they have — 3.3 million people have visited the White House for visitors office events since 2009. Until now, they couldn't even take a single picture to prove it. All that changed yesterday, when the ban was officially lifted.


    You can follow the white house at @whitehouse and schedule a free and open tour of the East Wing online. In the meantime, follow #whitehousetour for up-to-date pictures from inside.
