Yes, Vice President Biden joins Obama on Twitter under the account @VP.
The first Tweet: “VP & Dr. B hope you take time to think about our troops & military families this Independence Day, Happy 4th from OVP!,” said the inaugural tweet from the Office of VP Biden, with the handle @VP.
The White House Blog reports that Biden’s staff will be providing updates on the latest news and announcements coming out of the Office of the Vice President.
It’s part of the White House‘s growing focus on social media. The White House regularly communicates to supporters via Twitter, as does President Obama’s re-election campaign.
On Wednesday, the White House will even hold a Twitter town hall. Obama will take questions via Twitter, though he’ll respond verbally.
