Well, so much for transparency. Apparently the thin-skinned occupant of the White House, or whoever is running his Twitter account, can’t handle a little ribbing from a constituent. Like many on Twitter I enjoy adding “@BarackObama” to tweets if I’m poking fun at him, which happens often.
Then the other day when he personally sent a tweet from a long distance saying he was “standing by” the hapless Tom Barrett in Wisconsin, I went to check it out.
Then I found I was blocked from seeing his tweets.
So here I am, someone helping pay this jerk’s salary and I can’t see his tweets? It seems more than a little childish for the President of the United States (or his handlers) to be blocking access to an account followed by over 16 million people. We assume it’s a staffer behind this. If it’s Obama himself, we’ve got much larger problems than we thought.
Does one little blogger really get under their skin that much? If so, mission accomplished.
