Grandpa Grassley Tweets Nonsense About Kavanaugh Accuser

On one hand, I commend Chuck Grassley for clearly writing his own tweets and expressing his views without the use of an aide or a "tweet writer". It is refreshing to know that he is the one actually pecking out his tweets on a phone or laptop. That being said, sometimes I think he would benefit from a quick tutorial by an aide who can explain to him appropriate shorthand, what a DM is and how to actually write an effective tweet.

For example, here are his latest tweets about the hearing for Dr. Ford:

Is this meant to be a message TO Dr. Ford?

Was this supposed to be a DM (direct message) or a text message to Kavanaugh?

This one is actually funny and is Good Twitter:

Again, good move by Grassley to extend Dr. Ford more time and for keeping us on our toes on twitter.

Can you help us out?
