DNC Revives Joe Biden’s Twitter Account on Behalf of Midterm Dems

The DNC is firing up the ol’ @JoeBiden Twitter account, after the account lay dormant for over a year, with the aim of helping midterm Democratic candidates.

“Vice President Biden’s campaign Twitter account is re-launching on Monday,” a DNC spokesperson said over the weekend. “The account will be run by the DNC after being dormant for over a year. @JoeBiden will be another way for the Vice President to engage our supporters, spread the Democratic message and support our candidates heading into the midterm elections.”

Biden’s account has 549,000ish followers, but went dark after the 2012 election. Whereas it was run by the Obama campaign back in those innocent days, it will now be overseen by the DNC. (And if he wants it back to campaign for 2016, he may have to pay up.)

Biden will still tweet himself at @VP, which has half the followers.
