“Twitter Fight” among Members of Congress

I just read about the “Twitter Fight” between Sen. Arlen Specter and Sen. Chad Grassely, both defending their standpoints on the health insurance reform.

Starting with Specter’s Twitter message: “Called Senator Grassley to tell him to stop speading myths about health care reform and imaginary “death panels.”

Grassley said: “Specter got it all wrong that I ever used words “death boards”. Even liberal press never accused me of that. So change ur last Tweet Arlen“:

And another response from Spector: “I will try to persuade Senator Grassley that the availability of counseling is appropriate and should be included in health care reform.”
