Politico’s VandeHei Debuts First Tweet

This is either the start of something really great or the end of the world as we know it.

Politico‘s Executive Editor Jim VandeHei, who has had an official Twitter account for a good while but has never used it, issued his first-ever tweet just moments ago. It concerned his wife, Autumn VandeHei.

Burning questions: Will Politico‘s Exec. Editor take over for @FakeJimVandeHei, VandeHei’s alter ego mystery account, and tweak Politico reporters and WaPo? Will VandeHei turn into a relentless tweeter/retweeter (think TIME‘s Zeke Miller), hang out at Outbeak Steakhouse on the weekends and tweet whatever he sees (a la BuzzFeed‘s John Stanton) or start a war against the Twitter apostrophe (hello TPM‘s Josh Marshall)? Or will he follow a less is more strategy?
