George H.W. Bush tweets



George H.W. Bush, who was not well enough to join the Presidents Club (Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter) at the memorial in South Africa on Tuesday for Nelson Mandela, instead joined Twitter to offer his condolences.

As of Tuesday evening, @GeorgeHWBush already had more than 34,000 followers.

The 89-year-old is a conservative when it comes to following others on Twitter. He’s sticking to family: his sons Neil and Jeb and daughter-in-law Laura.
