Stearns now on Twitter

As Twitter becomes a more popular means of communication, members of Congress who don't use the microblogging service are catching on.

Rep. Cliff Stearns (R-Fla.) is the latest congressman to sign up for Twitter. He is now tweeting under the handle @RepCliffSterns.

Stearns' first tweet discussed his position on President Barack Obama's policy czars:

It is unclear if Stearns will tweet himself but a sample of his feed indicates that his staff is handling the work thus far. Several tweets refer to the congressman in the third person and multiple applications have been used to tweet.

Stearns currently has 39 followers.
