Milloy’s Nightmare? Myopic Little Twits Are Running the Place

Milloys Nightmare? Myopic Little Twits Are Running the PlaceFor as much as some of our commenters gripe, there’s a reason DCist and other news organizations keep tabs on the Twitter accounts of our elected officials here. Mayor Vince Gray and most members of the D.C. Council are fond of the micro-blogging service and, Bruce DePuyt writes on TBD, they use it well.

Besides the occasional fun Twitter-based story-Marion Barry’s football spleen or Vincent Orange’s commandments to Brian Byran Bryan Weaver are a couple recent examples-DePuyt notes District officials’s 140-character utterances can go a long way in directing the actual news narrative. The @mayorvincegray account, we reported last week, was more than willing to take on people criticizing the city’s mobilization of snow-emergency crews ahead of a winter storm that never materialized.

Twitter has created, with few exceptions, a round-the-clock conversation between elected officials, the people they serve and the reporters who cover them:

In the District, politicians, journalists and residents engage in a rolling, candid and sometimes unruly conversation from daybreak until bedtime.
