I'm feeling a swelling sense of granddaughterly pride in Senator John McCain today. I think we can all agree that this was downright adorbs:

@SenJohnMcCain is running his Twitter himself now — something the technologically-savvy @BarackObama never did. In fact, @BarackObama's Twitter is now defunct, to the disappointment of his 332,598 forsaken-feeling Tweeple.

Almost all of Twitteronia thinks @SenJohnMcCain is adorable. There are the usual cynics claiming it's actually an aide, but most are applauding: "You're doing awesome Senator McCain." "You are a true maverick." "You give me hope that i can figure it out too!"

I have transferred@SenJohnMcCain to the "Real Friends" group in my TweetDeck because I want to be immediately apprised of every cute tweet that he tweets.

    i thought you were joking on twitter when you first mentioned it. I’m actually looking him up now.

    That’s exactly like emails from my grandmother. Going to follow him.

  3. Alisa says:

    The “YEs!!” is the cutest. Especially the double exclamation points.

  4. Quite a burn for those who don’t make the “Real Friends” cut! comments nervously, plagued by insecurity that she can never out-Tweet @SenJohnMcCain

    Actually, quite a burn for those who make the “Annoying” TweetDeck list. Don’t worry. You’re on the “Real Friends” list but I highly doubt you’ll be able to out-Tweet @SenJohnMcCain. I’m waiting eagerly for his TOP TEN PORKIEST PROJECTS.

    “Adorbs” is the word.

  7. I hope he learns Twitpic by then, so that he can include a picture of Porky Pig. This visual aid is necessary.

  8. Alisa says:

    I hope he overshares.

    If Dick Cheney gets a twitter, then I will too.

    Aww! I have to follow him just because of that “YEs!!” Awesome. 🙂
