    It’s no @PrezBillyJeff, that’s for sure. The former president reappeared on Twitter on Wednesday with the handle @billclinton—although the first few tweets still had some help from Stephen Colbert. Colbert signed Clinton up for Twitter during an appearance on The Colbert Report on April 6 under the handle @PrezBillyJeff. Under a much more official-looking account, Clinton has returned, first tweeting an apology that he couldn’t make it to see Colbert and then saying he was “excited to join @ChelseaClinton and my good friend @StephenatHome on Twitter!” Does this mean Jon Stewart tweeting for George W. Bush is next?

    The first few tweets still come from Stephen Colbert.
