Warren Buffett is ramping up his social skills, while simultaneously helping young entrepreneurs out.

Warren Buffett yesterday debuted his new Twitter handle @WarrenBuffett with his first tweet being: "Warren is in the house."

But he isn't halting his social-media foray there. This upcoming Tuesday, Buffett plans to participate in a half-hour-long "Office Hours" live-chat session at 11am PST (2pm EST) from the headquarters of his Omaha, Neb.-based multinational conglomerate Berkshire Hathaway.

The 82-year-old billionaire entrepreneur has teamed up with women's network Levo League to answer young entrepreneurs' questions on the keys for long-term success.

"Being an entrepreneur involves the courage to navigate rare paths," says Caroline Ghosn, the CEO of Levo League. "To be able to ask Mr. Buffett -- one of the most successful entrepreneurs and investors of our century -- how he arrived to where he is today and what he wished he had known along the way is invaluable."

The half-hour session is meant to connect aspiring entrepreneurs with those who have had extraordinary success in their endeavors. Everyone from Facebook's COO Sheryl Sandberg to AOL's Brand Group CEO Susan Lyne to experts on negotiating a raise have participated in Levo's live-chat forums.

Besides having the opportunity to take advantage of these chat sessions, Levo provides people the chance to ask a mentor a question on its profile page.

While Levo's mission has an emphasis on helping young women entrepreneurs and professionals succeed in their careers, anyone can participate, says Ghosn.
