Have you noticed how smitten the media and politicians are with "Twitter?" It's kinda comical to me. They completely missed the boat on blogs so now they are overcompensating by making sure you know how hip they are by jumping on the Twitter bandwagon. I love technology, so I'm all for that, but it looks kinda silly watching the talking heads gushing over it. Q) What did you twitter today? A) I twittered so much.
The Politico has a new article up called
"The 10 most influential D.C. Twitterers" that is a classic of the genre.
Check out the list. Karl Rove helped destroy the Republican Party, but he's still considered the top dog.
This more transparent, funny side of Rove has taken many Bush bashers by surprise, prompting Daily Beast contributor Rachel Sklar to ask: “Can one of the most divisive men in America actually change his image — 140 characters at a time?”
Commenters scoffed. But as the GOP settles into life as an opposition party, Rove’s quick and dirty dispatches could prove useful to Republicans looking for a way back.
Sure, a few tweets and he's all forgiven. Please, take his advice.

If they want to join in all the Internet fun, I say go for it. Here are a few Twitter tips.
