Bill Clinton forced to join Twitter!

Washington: American political satirist and actor Stephen Colbert influenced former US President Bill Clinton to join Twitter.

In a recent sit down with Clinton, Colbert unveiled the Twitter account that he created for the 43rd president - @PrezBillyJeff.

According to ABC News, the segment, which aired on `The Colbert Report` on Monday, was shot on location during the Clinton Global Initiative University Meeting at Washington University in St. Louis.

Don`t forget to follow @ prezbillyjeff. I believe that as ex-president, everything he tweets carries the weight of law, Stephen Colbert (@StephenAtHome) April 9, 2013, wrote.

But when Colbert asked Clinton if he `tweets`, Clinton said he thinks he may be too insecure.

"What if you tweet and nobody tweets back?" Clinton asked, garnering laughs from the crowd, adding: "There`s nothing worse than a friendless tweeter, right? You`re just wandering around in cyberspace."

According to the report, Clinton admitted that his absence from Twitter may be a generational disconnect.

The @PrezBillyJeff account presently has over 66,000 followers.
