The Oracle of Omaha doesn’t just welcome anybody to Twitter. Then again, Hillary Clinton is not your average tweeter.

Hours after the former Secretary of State joined Twitter, Warren Buffett sent a tweet welcoming her to the social media site, complete with his usual charm:


Warren Buffett
Hello ! Happy to welcome one of my favorite women in the world to twitter.

For the curious, “#45” is very likely a subtle suggestion that Clinton run for president in 2016. (Winning would make her the country’s forty-fifth president.) This was only Buffett's third tweet.

Buffett, CEO of Berkshire Hathaway and one of the richest people in the world, previously expressed his hope that Clinton would run for president in an interview with CNN last November.

"I hope it's Hillary Clinton," Buffett said at the time. "I like what she believes in. I think she's extraordinarily able and energetic for that matter in pushing those beliefs. I don't see how you could have anybody better qualified."

As of late May, Clinton would easily beat both former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) and Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) if she ran for president, according to a poll by Quinnipiac University.

By the way, Clinton's first tweet was pretty good:

Thanks for the inspiration & - I'll take it from here...
