Oh Twitter makes so many things happen. You can fall in love, get fired, and cuss to your hearts content. And another thing? You can tell prominent senators to shut up. See how Al-Monitor‘s Laura Rozen expressed herself this morning at 7:44 a.m. as she reacted to a tweet by CBS Chief White House Correspondent Major Garrett highlighting CBS interviews with Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Lindsay Graham (R-S.C.). “I think it’s going to fail if it doesn’t change,” Graham said of negotiations in Egypt. Hmmm….maybe Rozen wasn’t properly caffeinated? Or maybe it’s now acceptable for a reporter to tell a few senators to SHUT UP and demand that they live by the Hippocratic Oath.
