If you’re a public figure, Twitter and Facebook are clearly the two top choices for reaching out to your fans and supporters. But to most politicians
(or anyone above the age of 35), the concept of Twitter is still new to them. And unless the interns are running the account, many are still figuring out exactly how to get this thing working. That could mean a lot of deleted tweets, typos, accidental tweets
instead of direct messages, et cetera. Politwoops, a project by pro-transparency group The Sunlight Foundation, aims to document all these deleted tweets made by politicians to showcase their entry to the digital age.
