This is almost too silly for words, but since others have been writing about it today, let me update you, too. I’m pretty new to the world of Twitter, so I was a bit surprised (but mostly amused) when ABC’s Jake Tapper blocked me from following his Twitter feed after my post this morning knocking his reaction to the Obama Special Olympics gaffe. Others were blocked, too, although it’s not clear to me exactly why. In any event, Tapper, in what I guess is a Twitter equivalent of a peace offering, started following my Twitter feed this afternoon, and I am now able to follow his again. He twittered: “tpm is unblocked. My bad”
Now back to the economy collapsing around us.
