Senator Dodd undone – tweeted and deleted
The hazards of the Twitter age became quite apparent for one senator today.
“U love torturing me w this shit” was tweeted on Senator Christopher Dodd’s Twitter account @SenChrisDodd.
Then came the tweet ”From Dodd Staff – Apologies to Dodd’s followers, last tweet was not from Chris Dodd.”
The first tweet has vanished into twitterair with a little help from the delete button, but some followers who were on their toes took screenshots.
The Democratic chairman of the Senate Banking Committee who did not run for re-election will be leaving Congress after year-end.
But looks like that tweet gained him some followers. Dodd now has 12,780 compared with 12,690 when the tweet went out.
