Twitter and FaceBook have become important tools for leaders to communicate to the public and gauge public opinion. Many members of Congress do their own tweeting… Some members even do too much tweeting #anthonyweiner. All members of Congress also have staffers (usually the Communications Director) who are in charge of monitoring what people are saying to/about the leader on social media.
