Former President @BillClinton Joins Twitter (For Real This Time)

William Jefferson Clinton, the 42nd President of the United States of America, has officially joined Twitter.

You’ll find him under @billclinton.

Of course, Clinton first signed up for Twitter during an April 9th appearance on The Colbert Report, when host Stephen Colbert took the liberty of registering the former president as @prezbillyjeff, after the username he’d initially wanted turned out to be unavailable.

“Well, sir,” explained Colbert to Clinton at the time. “I took the liberty of opening you a Twitter account. Now @presidentclinton was taken, @williamjeffersonclinton was taken, but @prezbillyjeff was available.”

Clinton has returned to Twitter today with gusto, fixing his username (no doubt with some behind-the-scenes assistance from Twitter) and posting no fewer than two tweets.
