Following Politicians' Deleted Tweets

Friday, August 10, 2012


It makes sense to assume an off-key tweet will disappear by itself in the ever-expanding Twitter-verse without consequence.  But some politicians don’t risk it, and delete tweets that might get spun into gaffes.  Enter the Sunlight Foundation’s Politwoops site, which keeps track of politicians’ tweets, lest a cover-up slip through the cracks.  Bob talks with Tom Lee who’s in charge of the project.

All these Twitter-related "tw" neoligisms ("Tweet" as noun and verb, "Twindex", "Politwoops", etc.) — they're all so dammed twee!
