Twitter was fun, when it first appeared from the gods like the same way they gave us fire. Actually, Twitter is still fun. But it is losing its charm when Senators start busting out the 160 character announcements. I mean, wasn’t part of the charm the fact that no one knew about it? Even John McCain is twitting, and he’s an idiot. And during Obama’s speech Tuesday, Senators were popping the twits out from left to right, like eating pop corn too fast and getting some on the floor. Just look at some of these listed from the Huffington Post:
Rep. Bob Inglis (R-SC): Speaker just gaveled to order. Senate entering now. It’s crowded on Democratic side. Not so much on R side. Something about 255 D to 178R!
Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO): Quite an ovation.The warm greeting between Pres Obama & Sec Clinton makes me proud of our democracy. What a difference a year makes.
Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-OR): His introduction of the first lady is a first
Rep. Rob Wittman (R-VA): I agree that all government spending should have accountability an transperency.
I mean, do we care? At all? And, if we don’t care about what elected officials are twitting about, why do we care about what normal people are twitting about? Its happened. The curtains have been pulled off and the truth shown to us. Twitter is stupid. Good thing stupid stuff is still a lot of fun.
