While the rest of the country was celebrating their freedom, Joe Biden—or one of his aides—was signing up to Twitter under the short-yet-sweet username @VP. His first tweet? (Or his aide's first tweet?) "VP & Dr. B hope you take time to think about our troops & military families this Independence Day, Happy 4th from OVP! @JoiningForces."

Perhaps he just wants to keep a closer eye on those Obama-killing script kiddies. [@VP via BusinessInsider]
