Former U.S. President Bill Clinton has joined Twitter and attracted more than 400,000 followers within 24 hours on the social network.
Clinton, 66, posted his first tweet shortly before midnight on Wednesday after U.S. comedian Stephen Colbert told him he had established an official account for him during an interview on his popular Comedy Central television program “The Colbert Report”.
“Excited to join @ChelseaClinton and my good friend @StephenAtHome on Twitter!” tweeted the ex-president on his account @billclinton. During the TV show, Clinton initially appeared sceptical about the usefulness of having the Twitter account.
“What if you tweet and nobody tweets back? There’s nothing worse than a friendless tweeter,” said Clinton.IANS
