Doug Lamborn discovers 2006

Posted By on Thu, May 24, 2012 at 12:01 PM

I guess this is news.

Today, Congressman Doug Lamborn's press office sent out this overexcited proclamation:

U.S. Rep. Doug Lamborn, Republican, El Paso County, 5th Congressional District now on the Twitter.

Twitter has been around since 2006, a year before Lamborn took office, so, wow, it only took him six years.

From the release:

Congressman Doug Lamborn (CO-05) is expanding his “all-of-the-above” communications plan. Lamborn now has a Twitter handle and will be communicating with constituents through Twitter. Lamborn currently keeps in touch with constituents through his website, electronic newsletters, Facebook, telephone town halls, traditional mail pieces, and in-person town hall meetings.

You can follow Congressman Lamborn on Twitter at @RepDLamborn.

The nice thing about Twitter is that you don't actually have to interact with anyone. The micro-publishing platform is great for sending out bite-sized exclamations on whatever it is that you are reading/seeing/eating, but not so much for actual conversation. In that way, it's the perfect tool for a politician. If you want to organize a protest, or revolution, it can be helpful, too, but I doubt that's on Lamborn's agenda.

Anyway, congrats Congressman, and many happy Tweets. But for all our sake, just don't pull a Weiner.
