Former US President Bill Clinton joins Twitter

Bill Clinton has joined Twitter, although it unclear how much he will be using his new account.

The former US President was signed up during an interview with comedian Stephen Colbert and so far has only sent one tweet:

Just spent amazing time with Colbert! Is he sane? He is cool! #cgiu

The bio on the account, which has already amassed over 56,000 followers, appears to have been heavily influenced by Colbert: "I am President William Jefferson Billy Jeff Rodham Clinton. Stephen Colbert is my BFF." [Best Friend Forever]

The interview filmed on Saturday in St Louis for at the annual Clinton Global Initiative University and has since been promoting Clinton's new Twitter account:

Don't forget to follow @prezbillyjeff. I believe that as ex-president, everything he tweets carries the weight of law.
