Vice President Joe Biden joins Twitter
Joe Biden, the vice president of the United States, is on Twitter.
Known for making the occasional hilarious gaffe in a speech from time to time, the microblogging platform that is Twitter introduces new possibilities for Biden to throw out a bit of straight talk directly to the world.
Which might be why Biden's staff at the office of the Vice President will be writing the majority if not all of tweets broadcast from the official account.
The White House announced Biden's foray into tweeting in a blog post Monday with a special Independence Day message from Biden and his wife, Dr. Jill Biden.
From Biden's @VP account:
VP&Dr. B hope you take time to think about our troops & military families this Independence Day, Happy July 4th from OVP! @JoiningForces
