Canada’s Twitter minister

Canada’s government is charging into  the Twitterverse, lead by the cabinet minister Tony Clement. Mr. Clement was already popular after stopping the takeover of a large Saskatchewan Corporation. However, his twitter feed has been required reading since early February. Mr. Clement’s 140 word posts cover everything from normal  chatting, to Justin Bieber, to just plain weird. Recently he Tweeted:

Those germophobes look so cuddly cute!! #N95 RT @ashleyscorpio @TonyClement_MP Get well soon!]
TonyClement_MP Tony Clement

“Yep, It’s official: I have strep. :-p <— please don’t open mouth kiss this emoticon”.  @TonyClement_MP

This kind of interaction means that Canadian journalists have no choice but to follow follow Mr. Clement.
