Our elected officials (and hangers-on) in Washington D.C. provide a wealth of material on a weekly basis. So, I thought it was about time I gave #politics a Tweets of the Week edition of its own. Laugh or cry, the choice is yours.
As an obsessive Twitter user (I'll admit to it being my favorite social media channel), every week I notice at least a handful of tweets that grab my attention for a variety of reasons. They might be funny or insightful or, on occasion, even smart. What follows are some of the political tweets that caught my attention in the past week.
This effort would be infinitely more interesting if I heard from you about what tweets you like and why. Send them to me on Twitter at @bobbbyg and I'll consider them for the next Tweets of the Week.
Here we go again ... tweet, tweet.
Today's themes are: The White House Correspondents Dinner #WHCD, Bubba Tweets and Happy Earth Day.
I couldn't have said it better myself.
Don't worry Governor Palin, I'm sure your invitation just got lost in the mail.
Rumor has it, Earth Day is Governor Palin's Christmas.
Thank you Ms. McCain.
Social media has changed the way that many of us learn, purchase, interact and explore the world around us. And, things are just getting started. Social, Social is a place to discuss social media with people from all walks of life. No experts allowed.
