From NBC's Kelly O'Donnell and Domenico Montanaro
It's quite the shift to see the candidate who acknowledged during the 2008 presidential campaign not using e-mail or Blackberries to now being a Twitter touter.
On the Senate floor today, Sen. John McCain expounded at length about "pork," as he sees it in the funding bill. He used plenty of examples and had more sharp calls for President Obama to use his veto power. And he went on about how his colleagues know he's begun Twittering -- that his office is Tweeting about using the outlet to talk pork spending.
Here's example on what's on his page currently:
"on my way to the floor to continue to talk pork"
"Back by popular demand... #10 $190,000 to rebuild a dock in Gold Beach, OR"
"Having breakfast with secretary gates @ the pentagon."
"#1. $1.9 million for the Pleasure Beach Water Taxi Service Project, CT"
"#2. $143,000 for the Dayton Society of Natural History in Dayton, OH."
