Watch Stephen Colbert Force Bill Clinton to Join Twitter

You can now find Bill Clinton on Twitter @PrezBillyJeff, which, as you might have guessed, is not a name he selected himself. Monday’s Colbert Report was devoted entirely to an interview with the former president, which was taped at the annual Clinton Global Initiative University meeting over the weekend. When Colbert asked why he doesn’t tweet, Clinton explained that he’s “sort of insecure.” As seen in the video below, Colbert took care of that problem by setting up an account and having Clinton dictate his first tweet. The former president was also worried about being ignored, noting, “There’s nothing worse than a friendless Tweeter,” but clearly that isn’t an issue. Just an hour after the episode aired, Clinton had more than 20,000 followers, and @PrezBillyJeff shared a message with all of his new fans: “I’m Bill Clinton and I approve this tweet, because I wrote it, because, like I said, I’m Bill Clinton.
