Follow if you are not a wuss

Follow if you are not a wuss

 

So says former Gov. Rendell, who has now officially joined Twitter (well, as of 19 hours ago).

Already, @GovEdRendell has nearly 3,000 followers, and has weighed on the Eagles and presidential hopeful Mitt Romney's now-infamous "47 percent" remarks (he calls those words "shocking").

Here is how the once tech-phobic Rendell describes himself, in 160 characters or less: "Ex-politician, media pundit, avid sports fan, dog lover, author."

And he gives a not-so-subtle plug to his book, A Nation of Wusses, by using its cover as his photo.

His first tweet: "It's official. I'm on Twitter too. My transformation to media pundit is almost complete. Follow along... unless you're a wuss!"
