@PrezBillyJeff: Bill Clinton is now on Twitter
Comedian Stephen Colbert lured the former president to the social networking site on 'The Colbert Report'.
New York: Bill Clinton is now on Twitter, albeit without a very presidential name.
Comedian Stephen Colbert lured the former president to the social networking site on "The Colbert Report" on Monday, signing him up with the handle PrezBillyJeff. Clinton dictated his first message to Colbert, who typed: "Just spent an amazing time with Colbert! Is he sane? He is cool!"
Whether Clinton would continue to use the account remained uncertain. Colbert's hand is clearly in the account's bio, too. It reads: "Stephen Colbert is my BFF."
By Tuesday morning, the account had amassed nearly 50,000 followers and was climbing fast.
Colbert interviewed Clinton not in his New York studio, but at the annual Clinton Global Initiative University gathering in St. Louis. The interview had been taped Saturday.
