Vice President Joe Biden is now tweeting.
The Delaware-native sent his first Twitter message reminding Americans not to forget about the brave men and women serving in the military this Independence Day.
The message, which was sent on behalf of Mr. Biden and his wife Dr. Jill Biden, read:
VP & Dr. B hope you take time to think about our troops & military families this Independence Day, Happy 4th from OVP! @JoiningForces
Just like President Barack Obama and Pope Benedict XVI, members of the veep's staff will manage the account.
Biden's addition to the popular social networking site is part of the White House's growing focus on social media. The White House regularly communicates via Twitter, as does President Obama's re-election campaign.
On Wednesday, the White House will be holding the first town hall via Twitter.
Biden's Twitter handle is @VP.
