President George H.W. Bush joined the Twitterverse Tuesday with the handle @GeorgeHWBush. Former President Bill Clinton joined the online messaging service earlier this year after being urged to do so by comedian Stephen Colbert. Bush Senior’s son, George W. Bush, has yet to join, however.
Hopefully this means that we’ll soon see some Twitter pics of the 41st president’s awesome socks.
Here is Bush Senior’s first tweet:
Barbara and I wish we could have joined the U.S. delegation honoring President Mandela today. He, and his countrymen, are in our prayers.—
