Last Updated: 10/29/09 Total: 304

After looking around for people to follow on twitter I have come to the realization that there aren’t many good places to find people worth following. I also figured that such a list would not only be nice to have for my own personal use, but it would make an absolutely brilliant thing to put up on the blog. So, without further ado, I give you a list of every congressman, senator, and governor I could find on twitter. If you happen to know of any I missed, please leave a comment or send me an email so I can include them.

As far as I’m concerned, if my elected officials have time to Twitter, they’re not working hard enough.

42 dems, 96 republicans… LOL and they say we’re the backwards ones!

You forgot Democrat Carolyn Maloney N.Y.
Democrat Charles Schumer N.Y.

 Comment by AnnMarie on August 20, 2009 @ 5:27 am

What are their usernames on twitter? I’ll add them when I find them.

 Comment by Janus on August 20, 2009 @ 10:04 am

Sen John McKains Twitter username is misspelled … missing the ‘h’

 Comment by Cybernetron on August 20, 2009 @ 11:48 am

OOPs I misspelled McCain … duh!

 Comment by Cybernetron on August 20, 2009 @ 12:06 pm

Thanks! Fixed.

 Comment by Janus on August 20, 2009 @ 12:55 pm

Maloney does not have a twitter account. There are several accounts claiming to be Schumer, but none of them have posted any tweets. Sorry AnnMarie.

 Comment by Aaron Pena on October 6, 2009 @ 9:10 pm

Absolutely. Thanks for the comment :)

 Comment by Janus on October 6, 2009 @ 10:01 pm

Are you including County Chairs? If yes, I’m the County Chair for the Democratic Party in Gregg County, Texas. My Twitter account is http://www.Twitter.com/JuneauEmbry. Thanks for the great list.

 Comment by Juneau Embry on October 7, 2009 @ 12:53 am

I have been including party officials and appointed political figures — I’ll be happy to add you Juneau.

I think the criteria I’m going to have to follow for this is going to be that the account is 1) directly related to American office holders and 2) limited to individuals or campaign offices. So committees will be out (a number of congressional committees have twitter accounts and I’m not bothering with them) and PAC leaders will be out unless they’re former officials or highly likely to run for office. I don’t really have a problem with party officials since they’re actively involved in elections and they’re political figures in their own right. I don’t really have any hard and fast rules and I’m kinda playing it by ear as far as who gets on the list and who doesn’t, but I think I’d rather be generous, get people on the list, and then allow readers to decide if a person is worth following or not.

 Comment by Janus on October 7, 2009 @ 3:40 pm

Oh, and if you know any of your colleagues that I’ve missed, please let me know so I can add them too. ;)

 Comment by Janus on October 7, 2009 @ 3:47 pm

Virginia – the two U.S. senators are Jim Webb (who does not tweet) and Mark Warner (who does, and whose count you listed correctly).

Mike Gravel is a former U.S. Senator from Alaska.

 Comment by Jen on October 20, 2009 @ 12:18 pm

Oh – two more:
Florida – you should remove Mel Martinez, since he resigned the Senate seat and no longer is in office.

Minnesota – first, Norm Coleman is a Republican, not a Democrat. Second, he lost his 2008 re-election to Al Franken.

 Comment by Jen on October 20, 2009 @ 12:24 pm

I don’t post after I’ve been drinking, but sometimes I wonder what I was thinking when I do things like that. Then I remind myself that I don’t post after drinking. Then I look at what I wrote. Then I wonder how messed up I had to be to not remember posting that.

… I could just be stupid, too. That’s always a strong possibility.

I’m think I’m gonna blame it on juggling 300 names and just being human. … yeah, that sounds like a good excuse. :P

Thanks, Jen. I really do appreciate it.

 Comment by Janus on October 20, 2009 @ 7:36 pm
