Yes, Brian Williams is on Twitter

brilliams091610.bmp“NBC Nightly News” anchor Brian Williams has joined the Twittersphere. This is the same man who said in October, 2009: “There is nothing I need to say so urgently. If I feel the need for Twitter, if I think it will satisfy something and fill a national yearning, I’ll start doing it.”

Well, apparently there has been a national yearning, because here he is, verified and all. Despite not having produced a single tweet, he already has over 2,000 followers.

Fellow evening newscaster Katie Couric welcomed him to the club, tweeting:

“Hi @bwilliams! Welcome to @twitter! Looking forward to following you (don’t worry, I’m not a stalker) Your pal, Katie”
