(NEWSER) – Stephen Colbert dragged Bill Clinton into the social media revolution on last night's special Colbert Report. In an interview that aired last night, Colbert asked the former president if he was on Twitter.
No, Clinton confessed, "I think I'm sort of insecure. What if you tweet and no one tweets back? There's nothing worse than a friendless tweeter." That wasn't sufficient for Colbert, who had taken the liberty of creating an account for Clinton—under the handle @PrezBillyJeff. Clinton then dictated to Colbert his first (and so far only) tweet: "Just spent amazing time with Colbert!Is he sane? He is cool! #cgiu"
