For GOP, revenge is tweet
September 23rd, 2009

Politico’s story today about the Republican twitters being nearly twice as many as Democrats may reveal something about political smart mobbing emerging for next year’s elections. One of the 3 GOP power twitterers singled out by Politico is John McCain — who took flak when he was running for President for not being cool with email. Now the old sailor has jumped the email shark and is at the twitter helm. Since he is just a few days older than I am, his revenge is sweet stuff for me.

Here are some facts from the Politico article:

Nearly twice as many Republicans as Democrats have accounts on the social networking platform Twitter (101 compared with 57), and the GOP dominates Twitter usage by an even wider margin, according to a report released this week by the Congressional Research Service that analyzed two weeklong periods in July and August. During those spans, congressional Republicans posted 932 messages — or tweets — compared with 255 for Democrats, CRS analysts found.
