(CNN) - Let the selfies continue.
Vice President Joe Biden posted his first selfie late Wednesday, hours after launching his Instagram account.
And who better to star in your first smartphone self-portrait than the President of the United States?
"Found a friend to join my first selfie on Instagram. Thanks for following and stay tuned," he wrote on Instagram.
The smiling duo appear to be sitting in a presidential limo.
The White House Twitter account also posted the photo with a simple caption: "Pals."
Republican Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey welcomed the vice president Thursday morning with his own photo of Biden–a "Throw Back Thursday" photo, to be more precise.
"#tbts always trump #selfies. Welcome to Instagram @VP! #tbt @udbluehens," the caption read on Instagram.

Christie's office said the photo is likely from the fall of 1996. The Christies were tailgating at a University of Delaware football game when then-Sen. Biden of Delaware walked up. Both were graduates of the school. At the time, Christie was a county freeholder, and in the photo he's holding his daughter Sarah.
