After nearly three years of absence, former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell has rejoined Twitter.

His first official statements, in which he thanked his supporters, were greeted by well-wishers and detractors alike.

McDonnell's last public activity on the Twitter feed was a retweet of current Gov. Terry McAuliffe on Jan. 8, 2014, in which he thanked God for "making me a Virginian."

McDonnell's step back into social media comes after a legal ordeal that began in 2014 during which he and his wife, Maureen, were found guilty of federal corruption charges and sentenced to prison. After a lengthy appeals process, the convictions were overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court in June.
