Biden’s New Twitter Account

by Nat Brown

Will there be a character limit for all future Bidenisms? The AP reports:

Now appearing on Twitter: Vice President Joe Biden.

The famously verbose veep sent his first-ever tweet Monday, a Fourth of July message from himself and wife Jill Biden asking Americans to take time to think about U.S. troops and military families.

His office announced the development with a post on the White House blog.

Given his gift for gab — not to mention gaffes — Biden might seem an unlikely candidate to say it in 140 characters or less. Not to worry — like most politicians’ tweets, Biden’s will be staff-written.

It’s part of the White House’s growing focus on social media. The White House regularly communicates via Twitter, as does President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign. Obama has told supporters he’ll personally author some of the campaign tweets.
