Is Sarah Palin Back on Twitter?

sarah-palin-b_31Has Sarah Palin rejoined the Twittering masses after nearly three weeks of silence? According to CNN, she’s back, picking up the name “SarahPalinUSA.”

The former Alaska governor stopped using her previous account, AKGovSarahPalin, on July 26, her last day in office. Her farewell tweet: “Last state twitter. Thank you Alaska! I love you. God bless Alaska. God bless the U.S.A.”

That account is still up, where she has more than 135,000 followers. She hasn’t posted any updates under her new name, though it already has some 2,500 followers.

It’s not clear how CNN verified that the new account is legitimate, and Ms. Palin has been a frequent target of online impersonators.
