On My Real-Time Twitter Coverage Of The Debt Debate… If you follow me on Twitter, you know that my feed has been consumed over the last few days by the debt debate that has engulfed Washington.

The debt debate isn’t exactly sexy stuff. Talk of triggers, sequestrations and CBO scores makes most people cringe. So why did I spend my weekend tweeting about what was going on? Because, somehow, I found an audience. Having reported from the Hill before and having studied Congress in-depth in college, I felt qualified to tweet about, explain and analyze what was going on.

I follow a bunch of Capitol Hill reporters, and when they tweeted news or unique analysis, I retweeted them to share with everyone. I also follow “official” accounts — those of spokespeople and members of Congress themselves. There was news to be retweeted there as well.
