The 10 most influential D.C. Twitterers

February 24, 2009

Here are the new maestros of the tweet — Washington’s 10 Most Influential Twitterers.

1. Karl Rovewww.twitter.com/karlrove

The Architect opened a Twitter account in January and quickly amassed more than 11,000 followers. If you’ve ever wanted a peek inside Bush’s Brain, Rove provides one, with updates on the GOP’s future (“How do we hold back the tide? We must make a case that turns public opinion”) and humorous quips about his former colleague Dick Cheney (“I look forward to my next hunt with him”).

This more transparent, funny side of Rove has taken many Bush bashers by surprise, prompting Daily Beast contributor Rachel Sklar to ask: “Can one of the most divisive men in America actually change his image — 140 characters at a time?”

Commenters scoffed. But as the GOP settles into life as an opposition party, Rove’s quick and dirty dispatches could prove useful to Republicans looking for a way back.
