MANHATTAN — Hello, Twitter.

Comedy legend Jerry Seinfeld finally broke down and joined the Twitteverse, after saying that doing so would be about as likely as him running out of jokes about airline travel, according to the New York Times.

Seinfeld had called Twitter, with its observations in 140 characters or less, "stand-up with a net," according to the paper.

"Greetings Tweetarians! I have just landed on your Planet. This could be my last Tweet," he wrote on Friday for his debut message.

His second may have belied a Newman-esque frustration with the micro-blogging tool.

"Second Tweet! Am I done yet?" he wrote later that day on @SeinTime.

His handle, Seinfeld explained, is a nickname that Chris Rock gave him "many years ago."

"Going to Maine today to pick up kid from camp," he wrote in a post Saturday. "Why did Nazis call it Concentration Camp? So misleading in so many ways."
