Last week, Beyoncé penned a letter of appreciation to First Lady Michelle Obama to praise her for her good work and being "the ultimate example of a truly strong African American woman."

The handwritten letter, which was posted on Beyoncé’s revamped website, goes on to describe the FLOTUS as being a caring mother and a loving wife while handling the task of being the first lady of the United States with such grace.

"No matter the pressure, and the stress of being under the microscope — she's humble, loving, and sincere," Beyoncé writes. "She builds and nurtures her family, while also looking out for so many millions in so many ways. Michelle, thank you so much for every single thing that u do for us — I am proud to have my daughter grow up in a world where she has people like you to look up to."

Well, her kind words made it to FLOTUS's ears because she personally replied to Beyoncé’s letter via Twitter Friday afternoon.

"@Beyonce Thank you for the beautiful letter and for being a role model who kids everywhere can look up to. –mo"

According to the campaign staff behind Michelle Obama's Twitter account, tweets that sign off with "-mo" come straight from the first lady herself. Beyoncé only just signed on to Twitter last week to go along with a new photo Tumblr account, but looks like she's already amassing a few impressive mentions and replies.
