Over at The Shad Plank, a Daily Press blog, they picked up on Tweet Congress, a site that monitors who in Congress uses twitter. They checked on Virginia’s delegation and found out that several of our representatives and one of our senators remain blissfully unaware.
Most surprising (read distrubing), Southwest Virginia’s own Rep. Rick Boucher does not twitter. He recently took over the House Subcommittee on Telecommunications and the Internet, and he is a co-chair of the House Internet Caucus.
Rep. Bob Goodlatte also does not twitter. He too is a co-chair of the Internet Caucus.
What gives, guys? If you’re going to play overseers of the Internet, maybe you should be involved in what’s going on on the Internet. When lawmakers don’t know what their dealing with, bad policy often results.
Meanwhile, the Wall Street Journal has a story about Republicans playing catchup when it comes to the Internet.
And of course, you can follow the RT twitter.
