WASHINGTON, April 16 (UPI) -- Vice President Joe Biden snapped a selfie with President Barack Obama just hours after he joined Instagram on Wednesday.

"Found a friend to join my first selfie on Instagram. Thanks for following and stay tuned. –VP," Biden captioned the photo, which appears to have been taken inside a presidential limousine.

Biden already has a Twitter handle, but decided it was time to get into the Instagram game.

The administration said in a blog post that Biden's Instagram presence is part of an effort to "connect with citizens online."

The vice president's very first Instagram photo featured his signature aviators.
