Newsweek pointed out Tuesday some surprising activity on the Twitter account of U.S. First Lady Melania Trump. Melania's official @FLOTUS account, which has 9.7 million followers, only follows five other accounts: her husband Donald Trump's two accounts, V.P. Mike Pence, Second Lady Karen Pence and former President Barack Obama.

Amid rumors that Melania "has been distant" from her husband in the wake of reports he paid off a porn star to keep quiet about an affair they had while she was pregnant with their son, Newsweek claims, Melania began to follow Obama on Twitter - who is Donald Trump's "least favorite" person.

The exact date of when Melania's account began following Obama's is unclear, but the Newsweek notes that, "British novelist Matt Haig pointed it out last Friday. She tweeted, 'It’s a lovely bit of husband-trolling that Melania Trump only follows five people and one of them is Barack Obama.'"
