"You made me a better leader and a better man," the president said. "I won't stop; I'll be right there with you as a citizen, inspired by your voices of truth and justice, good humor, and love."

In his final tweet, Obama said, "I'm still asking you to believe - not in my ability to bring about change, but in yours. I believe in change because I believe in you."
