Tweet Beat: Chuck Grassley’s Shorthand Edition
The best of Washington’s week on Twitter
Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley: @ChuckGrassley
‘Quit complaining abt my Twitter shorthand I know how to spell But Twitter limit is 120 characters’
Okay, we’ll stop. But now we’ll complain that you don’t know that the Twitter limit is actually 140 characters. (That was only 135 characters, and we didn’t use shorthand at all! It’s possible, Chuck!)
House Speaker John Boehner: @SpeakerBoehner
‘@FoxNews: “After Gas Pains, Consumers Hit With Skyrocketing Grocery Bill”http://fxn.ws/fkA5Oa’
Whoever wrote that FoxNews headline is probably chuckling under his or her breath.
Chef Michael Voltaggio: @MVoltaggio ‘I’m pretty sure our military is currently using up all the bomb @Anthony_Evan: I’m craving some bomb risotto.’
Do you put that much Zing! in your delicious dishes?
Newt Gingrich: @newtgingrich ‘Here is a picture @CallyGingrich took of me and Knut the polar bear when we visited him in May 2007:http://on.fb.me/exBLxX’
If any 2012 presidential hopefuls want a shot at winning, they should pose only with cute, fluffy baby animals.
Howard Kurtz: @HowardKurtz ‘AP on Newt’s flip on Libya, now opposing intervention: Newt Gingrich has met his first debate opponent of the 2012 campaign season: himself.’
Well, at least he’s got the whole cute-animal thing going for him.
