GOP Is ‘Out-Tweeting’ Democrats in Congress


The Hill reports that Republicans are using twitter far more than Democrats.

A new report — dubbed “The Twongress Report” — shows that 89 Republicans are actively tweeting, compared to 43 Democrats. The divide is especially apparent in the House, where 42 percent of Republicans tweet, while only 12 percent of Democrats do.

Senator Twitter

The report finds that Sen. John McCain has the most followers of any senator, with nearly 1.6 million.

If only McCain had been so adept at using new media in 2008!
