Is Aaron Sorkin capable of completing a sentence using 140 characters or fewer? Has he perfected the art of walking and tweeting at the same time? Find out by following the TV vet’s brand new Twitter account, which EW can confirm is the real deal. (He joined the site last Friday; blame Sandy for us not reporting this important news sooner.)

Thus far, the Newsroom creator has only sent two tweets. The first was a hostage-style identity verification photo, seen above. The second was a message sent to actor Richard Schiff: “Other than 18 hrs/day for 7 years I’ve never asked for anything. I want the A. Silber cover,” Sorkin wrote. He was referring to a video of Broadway vet Alexandra Silber singing a new version of The West Wing‘s theme song; Schiff tweeted last week that he would release the clip, “but only after intense tweet demand.”

How many wonders will Sorkin’s Twitter hold? We won’t know until the Oscar winner tweets more — though considering Sorkin’s Internet history, it’s amazing enough that this account exists in the first place.
