Everyone loves Twitter. And the biggest political users of twitter so far have been members of the GOP in Congress. But, is it OK to Twitter comments while in a “private” meeting with President Obama? I think that it’s great and I want to see more of it.

“Audiences usually treat presidents to a round of polite applause, but when President Obama addressed House Republicans on Tuesday, they started Twittering,” according to The Hill.

“While Obama implored Republicans behind closed doors to consider supporting his economic stimulus bill, GOP thumbs worked overtime, tapping updates onto the microblogging website for thousands to read.”
