Following up on Karen’s posts on Pete Hoekstra, here’s a story from me about Congress’s love affair with twitter. And leaders – take note – this can be dangerous as the Virginia Senate proved (hat tip, Indy’s dad Jon Steinman). But what’s fascinating about this to me is the civic journalism aspect: if, God forbid, one day one does put U.S. troops in harms way, would they be held accountable the way journalists would be? Not to mention to privacy implications – what meetings are really and truly closed and what meetings – like say a private session with the President of the United States – are twitterable?
