The Oracle of Omaha has taken to Twitter. The notoriously tech-shy billionaire launched his @WarrenBuffett handle Thursday, where he quickly garnered more than 180,000 followers. He is the second-richest person with a verified Twitter account, after tech mogul Bill Gates (@BillGates.) His first tweet: "Warren is in the house. " Twitter might be a perfect medium for Warren Buffett, who has built a reputation for a folksy approach to investing. But it's also a surprising move given that he's not exactly the most tech-savvy person on the planet.

Lawrence was describing her shock at receiving the lead actress Oscar to "Good Morning America's" George Stephanopoulos when Jack stepped into view, shaking the interviewer's hand and flattering a stunned J-Law. After a mutual-praise exchange that had Lawrence gushing about loving "all" of Nicholson's movies, he began to take his leave.

Re "Stephanopoulos Tells All," March 12: I don't know which is more appalling, our president's sexual escapades and his subsequent lies or that his former aides seem to lack the same moral compass they berate him for losing. George Stephanopoulos defends the decision to write his tell-all book while President Clinton is still in office by saying that other people have done the same thing. Dee Dee Myers, toying with her own book contract no doubt, says that Clinton's lack of loyalty gives her freedom to be disloyal, too. Doesn't this sound like two wrongs making a right?

White House Senior Advisor George Stephanopoulos says he's ready "to grow up" and move on to other professional challenges if President Clinton wins a second term. Stephanopoulos, among the group of youthful "War Room" strategists who helped get Clinton elected in 1992, said his five years of working for the president are starting to wear him down. "In some ways, it's just physical," the 35-year-old told the New Yorker magazine.

George Stephanopoulos once occupied one of the most powerful posts in the White House. As a trusted advisor to Bill Clinton, the political whiz kid worked right next to the Oval Office and was a key figure in every major policy discussion. Starting Monday, the 48-year-old will take on a very different assignment. Seated next to co-host Robin Roberts, Stephanopoulos will work behind the anchor desk at ABC's "Good Morning America," charged with delivering both the serious-minded news and the frothier fare that make up the morning television mix. It's an unexpected trajectory for a Rhodes scholar who studied political theology at Oxford -- one that even he says he couldn't have predicted.

Clinton-aide-turned-political-journalist George Stephanopoulos had some reservations about whether he would be the right person to replace Diane Sawyer on ABC's "Good Morning America." But the 48-year-old said adjusting from his Sunday political talk show "This Week" to morning television wasn't as hard as he thought it would be. It didn't hurt that he scored the first interview with President Obama after the Democrats lost the late Sen. Edward Kennedy's seat last month. I know you were a morning person before this, but how has your routine changed?

Network executives are in talks with Stephanopoulos, who anchors the Sunday morning show "This Week" and serves as ABC's chief Washington correspondent, about the terms, according to people familiar with the situation. The talks began this week after ABC News President David Westin met with Anne Sweeney, president of Disney-ABC Television Group, and told her that Stephanopoulos was his choice for the post.

After years of toiling in the shadows of a giant, ABC's Sunday morning public affairs program, "This Week With George Stephanopoulos," is finally beginning to step into the spotlight once exclusively occupied by NBC's "Meet the Press." It's the economy, stupid, plus "This Week's" round table has been called pretty smart. "Meet the Press" has long been the dominant program, so far this season attracting about 4.3 million viewers each week.

When George Stephanopoulos was 4, he began serving as an altar boy at his father's church. Clearly, he enjoyed the rituals--the candles, the sacrament, the incense. "Maybe one reason I've never been queasy about the grubby work of politics, the mechanics of running campaigns and making laws, is that I spent so many of my early days behind the altar screen--where my father's prayers were my cues," he writes in "All Too Human," a memoir of the young aide's travails in the Clinton White House.
