Former President of the United States Bill Clinton has finally joined Twitter. No, for real. He only about a day ago and already, his account has been verified. He also has a header, theme, and background. All well prepared! Let’s not forget how he almost immediately gained 300,000 followers (and counting).

This was, of course, not his first introduction to the micro-blogging platform. Earlier this month, Comedy Central’s Stephen Colbert initiated the startup when he helped Bill Clinton set up a Twitter account on his show. With a funny handle (@PrezBillyJeff), no less.

On the show, Bill Clinton said, “I think I’m sort of insecure. What if you tweet, and nobody tweets back? There’s nothing worse than a friendless tweeter, right? You’re just wandering around in cyberspace”.

Also, Bill Clinton’s daughter Chelsea Clinton (@ChelseaClinton) is quite a seasoned Twitter user so we’re pretty sure he knows she’s on it. In fact, one of his first few tweets were directed to her:

It received over 3,000 retweets and over 2,000 favourites! To which Chelsea replied, “Welcome to Twitter, Dad!”
