Former President George H.W. Bush has established a Twitter account at age 89, Politico reports.

In his first—and so far only— tweet from @GeorgeHWBush, the 41st president wrote, "Barbara and I wish we could have joined the U.S. delegation honoring President Mandela today. He, and his countrymen, are in our prayers."

Bush, who left office in 1993, joins President Barack Obama and former President Bill Clinton, 67, with a Twitter presence.
While former president Jimmy Carter, also 89, does not have an account his presidential library does.

George W. Bush, the 43rd president, does not yet have an account.

The elder Bush is following @GB41Foundation, which is associated with his own presidential library and several other accounts, including those of his wife and sons, Jeb and Neil.

He quickly garnered over 40,000 followers, mostly well-wishers.

Obama is the first president to use a computer — an Apple iPad — in the Oval Office.
