Monica Lewinsky has joined Twitter

Following a much-publicized Vanity Fair story in May, Monica Lewinsky has taken the next logical step in her return to public life: signing up for Twitter. Her first tweet correctly anticipates a torrent of reaction:

Lewinsky's Twitter biography reads, "social activist. public speaker. contributor to vanity fair. knitter of things without sleeves." The omission of the other major role she played in American history is no surprise; in that Vanity Fair story last spring, Lewinsky wrote that she was "determined to have a different ending to [her] story."

"It's time to burn the beret and bury the blue dress," wrote Lewinsky. "I, myself, deeply regret what happened between me and President Clinton. Let me say it again: I. Myself. Deeply. Regret. What. Happened."

Lewinsky used her second tweet to promote one of her upcoming speaking engagements to a follower count that's already at 4,000 and counting. See? She's a Twitter natural.
