You Are Now Following John McCain on Twitter


He’s only about a year late, but Senator John McCain is finally where all the cool kids are. Twitter, of course. To our surprise, his updates have been surprisingly interesting to read — almost too entertaining, his “Happy Birthday Joe Lieberman” and “80,000 strong…!!” tweets sounding too good to not be by a twitter impostor. But it seems that it’s really him, and he’s all up in his lingo, using “ICYMI” and letting us know he’s figured out how to update from his BlackBerry.

His latest venture, a Top 10 list of the “TOP TEN PORKIEST PROJECTS in the Omnibus Spending bill the Congress is about to pass” is showing us he’s gotten the point of this whole Twitter thing better than most of our friends. Just when we were about to give up on Twitter, it seems like the voyeurism makes a lot more sense when it’s letting us connect with people we never thought we’d actually want to know about five times a day (Srsly). After the jump, our favorites.

Aw, John, don’t make us point out the obvious.

Not only do we get to picture McCain going “REALLY?” but this is actually quite interesting.

Snaps for Senator Byrd?

What does this mean?! Is he dissing Montana? Dude. Just because it’s Twitter doesn’t mean people won’t notice.
