Los Angeles - President Barack Obama's latest playful executive order is a tweeted effort to limit House of Cards plot spoilers.

The second season of the political thriller about a power-hungry Washington couple premiered in its entirety on Friday on Netflix. Obama's official Twitter account notes the occasion along with the request: "No spoilers, please."

Cast members revelled in the real-life president's support at a premiere event on Thursday night. Robin Wright plays Claire Underwood, wife of Kevin Spacey's vice president-to-be Frank Underwood. She says Obama "knows good stuff".

Mara says the 13-episode season is "just as dark as the first".
