Former FBI director James Comey, who was abruptly fired by US President Donald Trump in May, revealed himself on Monday to be the owner of a mysterious Twitter account.

"On the road home", Comey wrote in a post, which depicted him standing in the middle of a country road. "On the road home". He is, however, writing a book about his Federal Bureau of Investigation career and leadership and ethics, as his tweet plainly states: "Gotta get back to writing. Will try to tweet in useful ways", a comment sure to be interpreted as a jab at his prolifically tweeting former boss.

Comey has a book due out next spring.

On Oct. 20, Comey posted a picture of what appeared to be him watching the sun peeking over the horizon in an Iowa cornfield. He was abruptly fired by President Trump in May, who said he was thinking about the Russian Federation investigation when he made his decision. The firing ultimately led to the appointment of a special counsel, which has dogged the Trump presidency for months.

Comey has an obvious connection to his nom de twitter.

According to the Gizmodo article, written by Ashley Feinberg, Comey let slip at an Intelligence and National Security Alliance leadership meeting that he had both secret Twitter and Instagram accounts. He has rarely used the social media account unlike the current president of the United States. However, he uses the handle @FormerBu today.

'Actually I'm not even mad.

On Sunday, Comey posted a picture of a bird formation in a blue sky.

Comey has more than 40,000 followers, a number that grew throughout the day Monday. In March, journalist Ashley Feinberg published a long, detailed article explaining why the account nearly certainly belonged to Comey, but Comey had not publicly acknowledged having a twitter account.
