Tennessee Senators bring flame war to Twitter

April 23, 2009

State Senators Jim Kyle and Mark Norris of Tennessee didn’t leave it all out on the floor of the legislature.  Rather than have a conversation about policies that may help the economy of their state, they decided to tweet it all out in 140 characters or less.

Here it is:

mark-norris

jim-kyle

The problem is that Mark Norris is treading in dangerous water if his statement isn’t true.  If it is bullshit, then Jim Kyle or other lawmakers from Shelby county should nail him for defamation.

Imagine the 2012 presidential election for a second.  It is entirely possibly that attack tweets from one side will be replied to by the other side.  We could actually end up watching an internet flame war rather than a television flame war.   Crazy.
