George Herbert Walker Bush has written his first tweet yesterday. He is now the third U.S. President and the first Republic President to join Twitter. George H.W. Bush’s first tweet was to express regret in not being able to attend a memorial service for Nelson Mandela in South Africa. Barack Obama was the first president to join Twitter and he was followed by former President Bill Clinton. Check out his first tweet below:
Barbara and I wish we could have joined the U.S. delegation honoring President Mandela today. He, and his countrymen, are in our prayers.
