Bubba Tweets!

25 Apr

Most of you know that the genesis of Bubba on Twitter come from his recent appearance on The Colbert Report to tout Clinton Global Initiative efforts.

From the Yahoo! News blurb:

During last night’s Colbert Report, filmed at the Clinton Global Initiative University meeting in St. Louis, Colbert segued a discussion of whether young people should get into politics into Clinton’s social media presence. After Clinton discussed how new email was during his presidency, Colbert decided to get Clinton into the 21st Century. “Well, sir, I took the liberty of opening you a Twitter account,” he said, explaining that “PresidentClinton” and “WilliamJeffersonClinton” were taken, but “PrezBillyJeff” was available.

You’ll note the switch to the “more dignified” social networking moniker he’s using now from the original @PrezBillyJeff  handle he was originally assigned by Comedy Central’s king of sarcasm. Watch Colbert’s update to all of these developments here:
