It must be great to have the Congressional record. If C-Span doesn't catch a member of Congress's carefully crafted and expertly delivered speech, they can go back and amend it before it is official entered into the annals of U.S. legislative history. Certainly, C-Span has made things difficult for members to shy away from unflattering comments, but even there... Congress owns the cameras and therefore the camera angles... and so you only see what they want you to see when they want you see it. (That's why you never see the wide-angle shots of the all the seats in the House... folks asleep, tweeting, gabbing... doing crossword...) Even recent attempts for more candid camera angles resulted in, well, nothing.
Anyways, that tweeting. They all do it. I love to follow McCain's twitter feed... especially during omnibus bills. He loves to itemize all the earmarks...
But there are some folks out there who love watching the tweets. And CATALOGING them. You can read up on what your member of Congress tweeted and then regretted. Politwoops. Defender of the Universe.
