Former Governor Howard Dean is Now on Twitter — And He Loves String Cheese Incident

Posted By on Fri, Aug 31, 2012 at 3:16 PM

Can anyone hear your Dean scream on Twitter?

Howard Dean has joined Madeleine Kunin (but not Jim Douglas) on the list of former Vermont governors on Twitter with username @GovHowardDean. He started tweeting back in June, but it's only in the last couple of weeks that he's found his stride. At the moment, Dean seems particularly enamored of the retweet button but when the former governor speaks for himself in his tweets, it's as good as you'd expect. 

Dean started his Twitter life with a scream joke. So self-aware.



Last week Dean shared a few of his musical favorites: Jack Johnson and the String Cheese Incident.


Then he posted a photo of himself with former pro football player Jim O'Malley.


Today Dean waded back into political waters, calling out the Republican National Convention for bizarrely identifying a Randolph couple as being from New Hampshire last night.


And then he retweeted a Thai restaurant. Good stuff. Give him a follow.
