A Cautious Man
March 17, 2009
Tweet, Tweet, Tweet
Remember a long, long time ago, when Barack Obama and John McCain ran against each other in the Presidential election? At the time, there was a silly Obama ad about how Senator McCain "Can't send an email." It was silly, because it really had nothing to do with whether Senator McCain could be President. However, the McCain partisans weren't content to just call it silly, they had to ratchet it up. They started carrying on that Senator Obama was mocking Senator McCain's wartime injuries, including injuries to his fingers which made him unable to type.

Yes, those were good times. Since then, Senator McCain has apparently not only caught up on the latest technology, but also taken a side-trip to Lourdes, because now he's on "Twitter" and can "tweet" like a champion!

Hey there! SenJohnMcCain is using Twitter.
Twitter is a free service that lets you keep in touch with people through the exchange of quick, frequent answers to one simple question: What are you doing? Join today to start receiving SenJohnMcCain's updates.

It might be interesting to keep track of Senator McCain's "tweets". For example, earlier today he did a twitter interview (would that be a "twinterview"?) with George Stephanopoulos. He started out -

@GStephanopoulos Happy St. Patrick's day - slow, sometimes pc somtimes bb

(The apparently new ability to tap out "GStephanopoulos" on a Blackberry is the reason for the "Lourdes" comment, above). Since it's on Twitter, all the Q's and A's are short. One in particular caught my eye, concerning former Vice President Cheney's comments from this past weekend. George asked -

@SenJohMcCain Cheney said on CNN that Obama putting US at risk of new terror attack Agree?

Senator McCain responded -

@GStephanopoulos too early to draw that conclusion.

I just thought that was an interesting little tidbit to find there.
