Twittering the Briefing -- Hyper Fix Style

In keeping with our pledge to bring our loyal readers inside the White House, we are twittering today's press briefing -- featuring White House spokesman Robert Gibbs -- from inside the press room. (Second row, third seat in -- not bad!)

We'll be doing this two or three times a week to keep Fixistas up on the goings-on of Gibbs and the the broader Obama Administration.

You can follow the tweets one of two ways. First, you can just stay with this post and refresh occasionally to see our latest 10 tweets (or so), which will appear below.

Or you can sign up for our Twitter feed at TheHyperFix. NOTE: This is a Twitter feed set up just for events -- like the press briefing or major speeches -- and there will be a high volume of tweets in a short period of time. Our normal Twitter feed will still live at TheFix.

Have no idea what Twitter is? Watch this. Then sign up for TheHyperFix and TheFix feeds to make sure you don't miss anything.

    Chris, please stop tweeting! Fixistas do not have ADHD, and we hope that the Fix doesn't, either.

    Since you have power outlets at your seat may I suggest a small space heater....

    Whatever happened to the 'Good Old Days' of Politics? We just voted every once in a while (during a Presidential election year when someone we hated was nominated by Dems or Repubs).

    Then we just complained about our everyday affairs without much emphasis on our connection to National and World politics.

    I'm beginning to dislike trying to stay moderately apprised of the day to day meanderings -- it's like a car wreck -- no matter what I say I am going to do, I still slow down, drive erratically and gawk as much as possible.

    i like the idea.
    so much is going on, WaPo can stay on top of stuff.

    For instance: i would still like to know if Helen Thomas got the first question of the first P.C.

    NSA pervasive spying on public and journalists -- just the "baseline" program for THIS?:

    (Isn't that meatier than "Did he talk to Gore first?" This is coming from a fan...)

    As I mentioned in a post last week... this is pretty useless to those of us interested in real content.

    Fix: Why has no one asked about the revelations of pervasive NSA spying on public and journalists -- and whether that's just a "baseline" for other programs that violate civil liberties and constitutional rights?

    As a citizen, and therefore part owner of the seat from which you twit, may I ask that you give it up and make it available to a reporter? Thanks in advance.
