The first tweet was sent from the account Mr. Colbert set up, @PrezBillyJeff, who said, “Just spent amazing time with Colbert! Is he sane? He is cool! #cgiu.”

The 42nd president’s new handle had over 360,000 followers as of Thursday afternoon and Mr. Clinton is already suggested his daughter Chelsea be his micro-blogging coach, USA Today reports.


“I taught @billclinton to tweet! This is almost as exciting as the time I taught Cheney “Dance Dance Revolution,” Mr. Colbert boasted on Twitter Thursday.
