Suddenly, Palin lights up the Twitterverse

About these ads

After a few days off the grid, salmon fishing with her family and entertaining network TV correspondents in her waders in remote Dillingham, Alaska, soon-to-be-ex-Gov. Sarah Palin is tweeting up a storm.

Her thoughts, dished up in truncated, 140-character-limit Twitter-ese, range from philosophical nuggets on how to live life to dissing D.C. talk of a second stimulus package to her latest local doings as governor. As of Wednesday, she has nearly 90,000 followers on Twitter. But if this is going to become her main pipeline of communication to supporters – over and around the MSM – that number may jump dramatically.

Over on Facebook, Palin has 624,495 supporters, but she hasn’t said anything new there since her note on July 4.

As of 11:28 a.m. Eastern time (7:28 a.m. Alaska time), she has tweeted four times already today, and nine times since Tuesday afternoon. Here’s what she has said:

Today,try this: "Act in accordance to your conscience -risk- by pursuing larger vision in opposition to popular, powerful pressure"-unknown
