The Blue Dog Democrats now have their own Twitter account under the handle @BlueDogPress.

"Blue Dog Coalition is now on Twitter!" reads the feed's first tweet. "Follow this account for the latest info on the Blue Dogs in the House of Representatives."

The coalition's membership of centrist and conservative Democrats was slashed by at least half during the midterm elections. Two of its four leaders — Reps. Baron Hill (Ind.) and Stephanie Herseth (S.D.) — did not secure reelection.

So far, the account has 12 followers.
