WASHINGTON -- Sen. Angus King has officially re-joined the social media horde.
King's staff had still been using his campaign's Facebook site to post pictures and information up until Tuesday morning. The campaign'sTwitter account had been deactivated, leading one social media news site to point out that he was one of just three people among a class of 79 new members of Congress who did not yet have a Twitter account.
Here are the links for King's new sites:

As of Tuesday afternoon, King had just under 500 "likes" on Facebook (compared to more than 46,000 on his campaign's Facebook site), had sent out one tweet and posted one video on his YouTube channel.
"I am committed to maintaining open avenues of communication with my constituents in Maine in order to best serve their interests," King said in a statement. "To that end, social media is an invaluable tool in connecting me with people from across the state – hearing their concerns and opinions – and improving overall correspondence. I hope Mainers across the state will take advantage of social media to converse with me and my staff."Tweet
