Notorious former White House intern Monica Lewinsky joined Twitter, seriously!


Monica Lewinsky has joined Twitter.

The infamous former White House intern joined the social network Monday with a single tweet.


The 41-year-old's Twitter bio says she is a "social activist. public speaker. contributor to vanity fair. knitter of things without sleeves."

Lewinsky's plunge into the Twitter pool was also promoted by Vanity Fair.

"Please join us in welcoming Monica Lewinsky to Twitter. Seriously!" The magazine tweeted.

The columnist gained more than 1,000 followers within half an hour of her first tweet.

Lewinsky joining Twitter was met with the expected jokes about former President Bill Clinton, with whom she had an affair during his time in the White House.

Several people tagged the 42nd President of the United States in discussing Lewinsky's bold move to join Twitter.

Others joked about him being her first follower.

As of 10:00 a.m., Clinton was following only 10 other accounts.

None of them were Lewinsky's.
