Twittering and More for 2008


Who are the biggest "twits" in the presidential race? Well, if you consider those utilizing Twitter, the popular bulletin board site, then the winners are soon-to-be-candidate Fred Thompson on the GOP side and Democrats John Edwards and Sens. Barack Obama, Chris Dodd, and Joe Biden. Among them, Thompson seems to be a big user, Twittering twice a week. And, says his Internet czar Pete Snyder, "he's not even in the race." Once in, "I think a lot of that will change," he adds, meaning more entries. As in life, Thompson is folksy when he Twitters. In England in June, he offered: "London is banning smoking in public July 1. I just had a nice cigar with my wonderful host as a tear rolls down my cheek. Cheers, Fred."
