Sorry, Obama and McCain are Twitterers. That's what I should have said. Or at least that's what Tech President reckons.
Representatives of both candidates are apparently both hard at it, debating the presidential race on Twitter. The debate started on Friday and is due to run until Tomorrow.
Moderated by a Time Magazine blogger, McCain is being represented by RNC online communications director Liz Mair while Obama has some professor called Mike Nelson in his corner. Nelson, I am informed, served under Vice President Gore during the Clinton administration, advising on tech policy issues.
Is it just me, or is it a shame that we have the tech-heads rolled out for this debate rather than the candidates themselves?
Now Obama reduced to a 140 character limit would be something to see, and McCain would have to grasp the use of smileys.
All, of course, assuming Twitter does not fold under the strain on its servers.
