Tales from the Trail
If you’ve been planning to catch up on what politicians delete from their tweets, you’ve missed the boat. Twitter has taken down Politwoops, the three-year-old site dedicated to collecting deleted tweets by holders of public office, because, says Twitter, preserving killed tweets violates Twitter users’ “expectation of privacy.”
Welcome to our latest feature in Tales from the Trail: A week in politics. And yes, this week indeed felt like a long one, what with the official entry of several new presidential hopefuls (Graham, Chafee, Perry) to the race and, finally, an announcement about the expected arrival of Jeb Bush next week.
