Former FBI Director James Comey shed his fake persona, which was the worst kept secret on Twitter, and it had many people excited to start harassing him.
“Here’s my new handle. Glad to be part of the Twitterverse. Grateful to Reinhold for the cover these last few years,” he tweeted in his first official tweet.

The Reinhold reference was an homage to the pseudonym he secretly used to tweet in the past, Reinhold Niebuhr.
It appears he came out of the Twitter shadows to promote his new book, “A Higher Loyalty,” due out this spring. He used its cover for his header photo.
“Formerly @FormerBu, past FBI Director, current husband and father, writing and speaking about ethical leadership, taller and funnier in person,” his bio read.
In the first two hours after the tweet it amassed 36,000 likes and more than 8,000 retweets.
It also had thousands of comments from people who couldn’t wait to give the former FBI director a piece of their mind.
Welcome to Twitter.

Let’s not forget he mishandled @HillaryClinton emails, playing a role in costing her the election. Let’s not glorify him needlessly.
