Bill Clinton welcomed Warren Buffett to Twitter on Thursday with a tweet: "What took you so long?"

He's one to talk. Clinton just started tweeting last week, though quickly became savvy and now even shares videos using Vine.

Billionaire businessman Buffett, whose first tweet read "Warren is in the house," earned 10,000 followers in 10 minutes -- and that was without any help from Stephen Colbert, who the former president credits with getting him on Twitter and boosting his follower count.

But somehow we think Twitter users would find Clinton -- and Buffett -- regardless of how many comedians recommend them on "Follow Friday."
