Iowa Independent: Grassley clarifies 'you got nerve' comment, vows to keep Twittering

Excerpted from this post at Iowa Independent

Despite a recent flap over a post on the social networking site Twitter criticizing the president for a comment on health care, Iowa Sen. Charles Grassley said he will keep on using the site to communicate with his constituents. "I've tried to use every latest technology to keep in touch with constituents. Representative government is a two-way street," he said. "I'm one half of that, my constituent's the other." ... The team at Gawker, a Web site dedicated to gossip and news, were particularly hard on Grassley, publishing an article titled "Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley Uses Twitter to Exhibit Insanity, Illiteracy."
