Twittering Gibbs

What better way to kick off a rainy week in Washington than with the sunny White House press secretary Robert Gibbs?

Gibbs will be briefing the press today at 12:45 p.m. (or so) and the Fix will be twittering right along side him!

To follow our tweets, check out "TheHyperFix" or scroll down in this post for the last ten musings.

    I have to say that I agree with the other posters in this thread. I take The Fix by RSS, and always skip over the Twitter articles, and just checked this one to reassess whether I'd been overly hasty in my assessment.

    Nope. This format might work in some cases (like the Michael Steele election with discrete serial events), but other than that it's too vacuous for words. Tweeting a press conference about which most of us are uninterested save for the very occasional noteworthy comment is neither erudite nor entertaining.

    More blog, more video, less Tweets, please.

    Yes, please stop the idiotic twittering--the Pet Rock of the 21st century. An extremely poor (and lazy) substitute for actual journalism and analysis. Your idle thoughts just aren't that riveting. With so many forms of journalism on the ropes, to be offered "tweets" is an insult. Please knock it off.

    Nope, that's stupid. Reading a blog instead of an actual column I can tolerate, but If I wanted to read tweets, I'd get a twitter account. I don't, so I haven't. Any schmuck can put 140 characters together. It's not for journalism, its for tweens and tabloid stars. Keep it up and I'll find somewhere to else to get my political fix.
