"On the optimistic side, what this will do is increase democratic interaction. It will flatten the hierarchy, it will increase communication. It will make politics more democratic," says Charlie Ess, a Drury University professor who has written a book on information and technology.

In a Twitter message to KY3 Wednesday, McCaskill wrote, "The best part is being able to directly talk to Missourians about my day without reporters editing!"

On why she isn't a "follower," McCaskill Twittered me, "If I tried to follow 1,000s of people responsively then I would have no time for my job."

Featured in the TV tag of the story:
Congressman Roy Blunt is also tapping into Twitter. He has a Congressional page HERE.
Blunt's U.S. Senate campaign Twitter page is HERE.

And look what other Missouri Pol has just jumped into TWITTER . . . Hmmm, wonder why.

What are we children? Who cares what she is Twittering. She's a Twitwit Nitwit as far as I am concerned. She's like a little kid. The way she follows Obama around comes across like a bad teenage crush. She constantly embarrasses herself with this tomfoolery. I can't wait until she's gone in 2012.
