It’s been a long week (or few months) of goodbyes to the Obamas. President Barack Obama has spoken to the nation in an emotional farewell address, talked about his lasting legacy in a goodbye letter, and taken a final walk through the White House. And now, he has sent his final tweet as POTUS.

Just hours before Donald Trump is sworn in as the 45th president, Obama took to the POTUS Twitter account to send a few messages of hope and change—which are familiar sentiments from him. He also took a moment to discuss what he and First Lady Michelle Obama are planning to do now that they’re out of the Oval Office. “It’s been the honor of my life to serve you,” Obama tweeted. “You made me a better leader and a better man.” His statement echoes a phrase he used in a goodbye message posted to Facebook on Thursday.

He also vowed—as has done previously—that while his role as president has ended, he plans to take his role as a citizen seriously and continue pushing for initiatives he began in the White House. On Friday, he also unveiled a new website, Obama.org, which features a fundraising page and a request form for events. “I won’t stop,” Obama wrote in a tweet. “I’ll be right there with you as a citizen, inspired by your voices of truth and justice, good humor, and love.” Obama ended his series of tweets by sharing his belief in Americans and asking citizens to remain strong in their convictions of change.

The president and first lady also posted a YouTube video Friday morning to share their plans post White House. They made it a point to discuss their presidential center, which will be located on the South Side of Chicago—where Michelle Obama is originally from. “It will be a living working center for citizenship,” Obama said.

And in case you were curious: The @POTUS twitter account, which was created in 2013, was first used by Obama in May 2015. The account, along with Obama’s 13 million followers, will also transfer to Trump. At the time of transfer all of Obama’s tweets will be stripped from the handle and archived under @POTUS44, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
