Former President Bill Clinton decided to officially join the Twitterverse Wednesday night, posting his own tweets a couple weeks after Comedy Central funny man Stephen Colbert set the account up for him.

“Excited to join @ChelseaClinton and my good friend @StephenAtHome on Twitter!” @billclinton tweeted Wednesday.

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.”

“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.
