George W. Bush meets with Twitter co-founder Biz Stone.
WASHINGTON (CNN) - A spokesman for George W. Bush told CNN Wednesday that the former president currently "has no plans of tweeting."
On Tuesday, Twitter co-founder Biz Stone met with Bush at the World Knowledge Forum in South Korea. Bush told Stone he got a BlackBerry (while in the White House, Bush did not have e-mail). Stone, tweeting about the meeting, wondered if Bush would join the social networking site. The question quickly spread on numerous technology blogs, and on Twitter for the past two days.
Could Bush join last year's Republican presidential nominee, John McCain, on Twitter? At least for now, the answer is no. Bush spokesman Dave Sherzer told CNN Wednesday that the former president had enjoyed meeting Stone, but tweeting wasn't currently on his agenda.
UPDATE: The Twitter name @GeorgeWBush is being held by the George W. Bush Foundation, a foundation spokesman confirmed to CNN Thursday, but there are currently no plans to start using the account.
