Congressional Twitter Fight Hits NPR

Friend of OTB Aaron Brazell was on NPR very early today talking about the controversy over Congress and social media.

The cause of the Twittering representatives has been taken up by bloggers like Aaron Brazell of Technosailor. “Frankly, we’re in 2008, and we have a government for the people and by the people,” says Brazell, who lives in Baltimore. “Right now, all the evidence shows that people are getting their news increasingly on the Internet, and increasingly engaging with each other online, and that’s where Congress should be.”

Aaron was all over this story on his blog as well as Twitter and FriendFeed.
