Druze Leader Walid Joumbulatt Takes to Twitter

Lebanese politician and Druze leader Walid Joumblatt is on Twitter – and had a hard time proving it really was him.

The account set up on October 27 has attracted about 17,000 followers so far — and a confirmation from the man himself.

Lebanese blogger Mustapha Hamoui quips:

After a three day hiatus after starting the account, the man went on a Twitter storm. To date, he has amassed 666 tweets, all in English, discussing Lebanese and regional politics and other tidbits.
